Cold Transmission Music: Control Room – Options

Control Room - Options

Recorded during the unyielding haze of the pandemic, Control Room’s new EP “OPTIONS” features dark, propulsive synth melodies and haunting vocals that evoke the masters of early post-punk and new wave. The opening track, We’ve Been Here Before is a laser-guided missile of love and hopelessness that will be lodged in the brain for weeks after a few listens. Are We All Alone is the perfect anthem for the isolated and paranoid. Other tracks, Encounter and Balance, highlight Control Room’s successful combination of brooding vocals and gloomy pop instrumentation. Fans of Tubeway Army, Wire and Ultravox will find much to like in this EP.
