Under Control

by Jitensha

Under Control is a song about rumours and feeling like all your dirty laundry is out in the open. How can one overcome that nagging feeling of being misunderstood? It seems like all you can really do is relax and try not to sweat the small stuff.

Album Notes
For nearly all our songs, we have written the music and lyrics together. When we started Under Control we were driving between Portland and Eugene and having a chat. I (Rose) had heard a rumour about David back in Vancouver, and asked him if it was true or not. He was taken aback - it definitely wasn’t true. We talked about how one can overcome that nagging feeling of being misunderstood. It’s the idea of having all your dirty laundry out on display that inspired the music video. All you can really do is try not to sweat the small stuff. We were working on the verses on the drive and finished the chorus by the time they got to Santa Cruz. “Oh oh don’t get emotional. You’ve got to ride it out. You’ve got a long way to go. Relax you’ve got it under control.” The mountains that loomed over us in Oregon, appeared as no more than specs of dust.

We hope that the song can serve as a sort of “reset” button. We want our music to feel light; we don’t think music has to feel heavy to be introspective or to convey a deeper message - there’s already so much weighing down on us all every day. In life, there’s no clean slate, no way to disregard our past or rumours, whether they be true or false. But what we can do is take a deep breath, speak our truth, and get on with it.
