Chaos Control Digizine

Interviews with both mainstream and underground artists.

In-depth music interviews covering electronic, experimental, rock, post-punk, gothic and a variety of other styles.

The Ritualists frontman Christian Dryden interviewed about the formation of the band and their debut album, “Painted People”

On their debut album, “Painted People,” NYC-based band The Ritualists showcase an intense, theatrical post-punk sound that seamlessly blends a variety of influences. The music can be dark and abrasive while also full of melodic hooks and soaring choruses. There is a strong glam rock undercurrent, but The Ritualists never come across as trying to emulate a particular style. Strong songwriting and creative arrangments make their influences coalesce into a sound all their own.

Keren Woodward of Bananarama talks about “In Stereo” and the history of the band

Since emerging in the early ’80s, Bananarama has had a string of hugely successful pop hits, including “Venus,” “Cruel Summer” and “I Heard a Rumour.” They’ve continued to tour and release music over the years and recently released “In Stereo,” their first album in a decade. “In Stereo” has a modern edge, but the pure, energetic pop songs are unmistakably Banarama. It’s become their most commercially successful albums in years, hitting the top 40 in England and several other countries.
