Alex Bloom, whose sophomore LP Chaos/Control is currently at radio, recently spoke to Chaos Control Digizine about the project. Of course, the magazine was curious to find out about the title of the LP. According to Bloom, the title originates with the LP’s final song: “Control.” Bloom tells the zine, “That song is really about just coming to terms with not having control over things in your life. The feeling of accepting the kind of the nothingness of it all, that nothing is ever going to become a me and that’s okay. All these reasons why that’s okay. It is kind of a bleak way of looking at it, but there’s a little bit of comfort in knowing that everyone has the same thoughts. There’s not really any way around that. So, it’s just exploring that idea. And then I guess the chaos is the other side of that: accepting the chaos.” It’s a theme that permeates the new LP.
