Shake! Appeal - Control

Shake! Appeal's various influences surface very distinctly on this understated single. There seems to be a lot of jingle in their jangle. Not unlike an early Byrds. Quite adventurous at times with some unexpected turnings. The whole recording has a great overall sound and the harmonies are quite engaging. As the band are only 17 we can maybe forgive them any tiny musical shortcomings as "Control" has a gentle 60's vibe that had this reviewer playing over and over again.

If this is them starting, then it'll be interesting to see where it takes them...

Definitely worth a listen.
