Ethan Smith comments. “Control was written at a time in my life where I really began to tackle my own inner demons. I was constantly dragging myself down without wanting or meaning to. At the point of it being written, I was living in a pub and had a lot of isolated moments after long shifts – heightening the negatives.
When piecing this song together, I began opening my mind to think outside of the box, digging deeper into those submissive thoughts and feelings. I was also inspired by many surrounding relationships and their truths. Giving the song a few other meanings and to leave ‘Control’ open to interpretation”.
