Vancouver based singer-songwriter Tess Anderson has just released her newest single, “Self Control”, an indie rock exploration on giving in to impulsive emotions, in life and love.
Within the context of an intimate connection, Anderson’s “Self Control” walks us through the struggles of jumping into things too quickly, an all too relatable experience. Her words are candid and raw, with an almost painful level of self awareness: “I’ve done it again, I’ve said too much”. The simplicity in her emotions is gripping to listen to, as the listener is faced with the fact that, regardless of the outcome, we’re bound to give in anyway.
“Self Control” has a haunting sound that blends in electronic elements with some rowdy rock and roll, creating a sultry vibe that nicely complements the energy of the words. As the narrator gives in to her desires, she is also very aware of the reasons why, which translates into the music in a way that’s sexy, yet somewhat unsettling. Anderson manages to craft a unique and enticing atmosphere.
