While I was out of the country (or actually waiting at the airport) I saw an email with info about TERRY. I was salivating…Dick Diver, Total Control and UV Race members? So, excuse me if I’m a touch late, but this shit is rad. There’s a slightly surfy guitar chord being picked throughout, working against a more discordant compatriot guitar and vocal. There’s something about the attitude of the song, something saying I don’t give a shit, just going to non-chalatantly kick this song out…a rad touch. The band release their debut TERRY HQ on Upset the Rhythm on July 1st.

The latest wave of music from Total Control provides another glimpse into their new album, Typical System. It’s a six minute long glittering electronic affair, displaying the poppier side of the band. There’s two sides to the record, and the beat-laden pieces are just as entertaining as the punkier sides. Personally, I like the fact that the band draws this tune out for such a long duration, as it begs you to take notice of the band’s focus on crafting two distinctly differing styles within the confines of the whole LP. Those looking for the heavier side of things need not fret, as every other song offers what you need. You’ll be able to listen to it all on June 24th via Iron Lung Records.

This is what it’s all about! I love getting a new track from Total Control, and this song is precisely why I’ve grown to love the Aussie band. There’s a steady propulsion of the song, pushed forth by the sound of the guitars, and the vocal delivery. My favorite part of the song is how it slows down, builds things up, then comes crashing back to Earth with the main construction of the song; it happens twice, but you’ll have to listen to get what I’m talking about. Their new album Typical System will be out on June 24th via Iron Lung Records.

If people weren’t aware of what Total Control were doing, then they’re going to surely take notice after listening to this brand new single. The project of Mikey from ECSR is known for providing this dark minimal electronica, spliced with elements of heavier pieces, but here it’s a pretty straight-forward pop hit from the Aussies. If you’re looking for the catchiest moments, you need look no further than the way the chorus is delivered. My favorite thing about the band? You never know what you’re going to get on their releases, but you know it’s always good. They have a new album titled Typical System that will see an early summer release on June 24th via Iron Lung Records.
