‘Control’ is the debut single from Essex based musician and vocalist ‘Mai’, AKA Rosie Gulliver. The track is also a unique collaboration with songwriter and producer Liam Watkins of the band A Cause In Distress.

‘Control’ fuses the otherworldly atmospherics of This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins and Zola Jesus with the industrial soundscapes of Nine Inch Nails and the sonic experimentation of My Bloody Valentine.

Originally conceived as a lockdown project, ‘Control’ carries a timely message about accepting the unpredictability of life.
Mai explains:

"It's about accepting a lack of control and embracing the unpredictability of life. Realising that you can make endless plans and fail-safes but ultimately you can never have total control, and that's okay."

The fantastic sleeve artwork was designed by A Cause In Distress’ guitarist Owen Stephen Foran

‘Control’ is out on 8th October 2021; via Southend-On-Sea based label Cool Thing Records.
