In a genre where everything is always angry, it’s easy to feel like sometimes those frustrations are performative at best. Not so much for Like Pacific.
‘Control My Sanity’ has a title that more than understands the assignment. Born during the start of the coronavirus pandemic, songs were written over video chats and iPhone demos – an experience that took a toll on the ADHD of vocalist Jordan Black. It’s that cathartic release that runs through the record – every yelled chorus a cathartic release.
Melodic and immediate, it’s also a tensed muscle, primed to release.
