Vella is back with her first new music of the new year. Regular readers of The Static Dive will remember the teen singing phenom from her singles like “Pull the Trigger” and “Angel.” 2021 was a breakout year for the 18 year-old from Tampa, Florida. After a series of viral TikTok videos, the soulful singer released a string of successful singles. She has played shows around the US and even recorded a duet with the legendary Macy Gray.
“Out of Control” is the brand new single from Vella, released worldwide to all major streaming services on February 11, 2022. The track is the first single from her forthcoming debut album, slated for release later this year. The song finds the singer further expanding the scope of her evolving sound.
After a gritty lo-fi intro the track lands on a cool downtempo groove. With a mix of electronic and organic instrumentation the tune pairs a modern Pop production with a classic 70’s Soul vibe. At the heart of the track is that voice. Vella belts out a tale of love and confusion in her signature soulful Janis-meets-Aretha style.
