Amoeba Review

01/26/2015

When you’ve got four people pulling equal weight in one band, the results can be that things flow even more smoothly—or that they get pulled in four separate directions, like some medieval torture device. Thankfully, from the sound of Control, Milo Greene fall into the former camp. Band member Marlana Sheetz takes the lead for the cool Hollywood dance-pop of “White Lies,” sitting nicely alongside likeminded artists such as HAIM and Jessie Ware. The male-fronted songs from her three bandmates are no less beguiling, as “On the Fence” draws influence from the likes of A-ha and Prefab Sprout for a smart and instantly pleasing new wave-jam. The “ballads” here have bite—“Save Yourself” is minor-key and sounds desperate, but its bouncing beat never quits, while “Heartless’” takes its Mirage-era Fleetwood Mac backdrop and builds it to a big, radio-ready chorus. Therein lies Milo Greene’s strength: they’re keen enough to reference ripe obscure hits of the past, but Control never feels like the stuff of bargain bins; songs like “Lie to Me” surge with dynamic energy and neat production tricks that make it feel very now. It’s the rare, well-produced pop album that still feels like a group of friends getting together to write and sing together—and they’ll get you to sing along, as well.
