Tom Flash – “Lose Control”

tom flash

Kicked off by heavy slaps of distorted guitar, Tom Flash’s new track “Lose Control” reminds me of the crunchy and ferocious alt-rock of Queens of the Stone Age — especially upon the powerful guitar emphasis from 02:11 to 03:35. The halted tease around 25 seconds in provides an exciting bursting intro to the track’s meatiest sections. The track’s fluidity is highly apparent after a minute or two; by the time the second bridge appears around 01:30, it’s very easy to be engrossed and gleefully anticipate the ensuing chorus: “hot, bothered, and dangerous … when I’m with you I start to lose control.” “Lose Control” is a fervent blast of energy from a group of very promising alt-rockers. It’s one of three tracks off the band’s Spit Take EP, which can be heard in full below:
