Fuzzed-out and symphonic, Total Control are equal parts noisy garage rock and post-punk drone.

Vancouver duo IMPOSTER(S) blend pulsating beats, hallow, tinkering guitars and these weightless vocals––there’s rock sensibility here but it’s coupled with avant-garde production.

Sounds like: “I shouldn’t chase lies through the woods.”

A simple, poignant and haunting ode to a love lost in the past.

Sounds like: “Living in the city, sharing a single bed. Tried to keep busy, wound up drinkin’ instead.”
