TOTD: Halsey – “Control”
Halloween just came and went. But, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be loving the creepy atmosphere while the leaves are still changing, right? That’s what we’re thinking. If you’re still feeling a little ghoulish and sinister, we’ve got the perfect song for you. Halsey, a powerful figure both in demeanor and vocals, brings us today’s Track of the Day, “Control.”
Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, aka Halsey, is an aqua/blue-haired powerhouse who just recently reached the legal drinking age. Hailing from New Jersey, she’s got the attitude of the East Coast and some heavy lyrics to go with it. “Control” has the sinister chords reminiscent of horror movies from the 60’s. The dark tones and white noise in the background are only an afterthought to the song’s chilling poetic lyrics, Halsey’s voice taking full control of the song.
Her debut album, Badlands, released in August, is a concept album that’s angry, emotional and melodic, each song just as chilling and powerful as the last. Halsey has become the ultimate voice for any woman who has been called a crazy bitch. She’s got a new single all over the airways called “New Americana,” but we like this one a lot more. Check out “Control.”
