Portland’s Stoner Control are back with their first single since 2018’s Alone In The City. The trio of Charley Williams, Sam Greenspan and Michael Cathcart continue to deliver big hooks in the spirit of Superchunk and Big Star.

Stoner Control grew out of a temporary side-project to become a powerhouse trio that has been making music since 2016. Taking inspiration from the rich sonic history of the Pacific Northwest, Stoner Control fuses a high-energy pop-punk sound with the unfiltered, lo-fi aesthetic of Portland’s thriving underground indie rock scene. Lead singer and guitarist Charley Williams infuses his lyrics with an honesty that is both playful and raw, creating driving melodies that echo Built to Spill, Superchunk, and Death Cab for Cutie.
