Stream Hyper – Control on Spotify:
From start to finish, Hyper takes you on this sonic journey that builds up with this ferocity.
Control kicks off with “Impact Weapon,” the EP’s lead single that was inspired by the 2020 social justice movement. Hyper actually sourced the track’s audio at a Black Lives Matter protest and the track is full of distorted synths and industrial sounds. As a whole, the song is dark, dystopian, and packed with intensity.
The track fades into the title track “Control,” a song full of intricate sound composition. This track alone feels like a cinematic experience as you navigate through this tangled web of complexity. You can tell that Hyper is willing to let his creativity rule the show and experiment with different sounds.
“Marauder” is full of haunting interactions that will give you goosebumps.
“Marauder” features lovely moments that make your mind wander and escape from reality. The beautiful compilation of sounds is incredible, from the strings, piano chords, horns, and percussion. Around the three-minute mark, you’ll find yourself tangled in this web of melodic sounds that abruptly end with the brutal sound of static. Then, Hyper brings the EP to a close with “Silo” which features this epic moment around the minute and a half mark. There aren’t any words that can describe the beauty in what you’re going to hear, but if there was a sound that defines an out-of-body experience, this is it.
Like a boss, Hyper allowed his artistry to run free throughout these four tunes and produced a body of work that’s a beautiful sensory adventure. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what he does next.
