Kevin Garrett follows his stunning debut single “Coloring” with another heart-wrenching single, “Control.” Following the same themes of heartbreak and broken relationships, “Coloring” expresses acceptance while “Control” embodies more frustration and desperation.
Sings Garrett, “I know that you wish me well / But darling I can never tell / It’s tricky when your love is just some cry for help.” Followed by the plea, “Say you don’t believe in me / Just so I can finally leave.”
In the words of Garrett, there’s no ‘coloring’ left in this relationship. The sparse instrumentation captures this sentiment, allowing Garrett’s vocals to breathe and linger, while simple piano chords and percussion add emphasis.
Kevin Garrett is an official SXSW showcasing artist. Expect him to make a splash.
