Sara Schwab – Control

‘Blue-eyed soul’ was made famous by artists like The Righteous Brothers, Hall & Oates, The Style Council, Lisa Stansfield, Simply Red, Paul Carrack and Joss Stone. Maybe it’s time to add a contemporary artist to that list. My vote goes to New York singer-songwriter Sara Schwab. Her songs sit somewhere halfway soul and jazz, a sound described in a press release as ‘melting butter’. Mixing humour with sincerity, she loves singing about mental illness, feminism, the subway and whiskey. She typically provides catchy music with striking lyrics to contrast.

Her new single is no exception. Control is an upbeat and soulful song with introspective lyrics to stand out against the fun musicality. Schwab explains: “I wrote this in quarantine after spending days upon days thinking about someone halfway across the world. What were they doing? Were they thinking of me? Were they forgetting my face already? I couldn’t stand the hypotheticals so I wrote this song out of pure frustration. And it ended up being one of the most fun and groovy songs I’ve put out there!”
