Control Top is trapped in a world of toxic narcissists in “Chain Reaction”
Propulsive Philly power trio Control Top will make their much-anticipated full-length debut this year with the Covert Contracts LP, out April 5th on Get Better Records. With the album announcement earlier this week comes a fierce new single called “Chain Reaction,” where singer / bassist Ali Carter rails against power-hungry, relentlessly-motivated narcissists, and the damage left in their wake.
As Al Creedon’s guitar textures squeal and soar, and Alex Licktenhour’s drumbeats slam forth, Carter howls in catharsis:
Do anything to prove you’re right
Lose everything to win the fight
Light the wick, pull the trigger
What started small is getting bigger
