Review: "Out of Control" - Vella

Have you ever been torn between two options? Honestly, who hasn’t? That sensation feels like your heart and mind just became fierce rivals in a game of tug-of-war. It's especially vexing when you can’t pinpoint exactly how you feel about someone. ‘Out of Control’ by Vella gives this battleground the 5-star treatment. “Why can’t I let these feelings go? Stuck in a cycle it feels like oh; you got me spiraling out of control.” She speaks about the difficulties of leaving a toxic relationship. Her mind sees the red flags, but her heart still loves this person. The disparity becomes a glorious, tea-spilling anthem that’s sure to have you singing along!

The song has this nostalgic retro-soul feel that is super refreshing to listen to. You get this modern production of drums, horns and harmonies that drive this infectious rhythm. While you’re bopping your head to the groove, Vella seizes your attention with sassy and soulful vocals. “If you know what you got right here, baby I ain’t going anywhere; cuz it seems like you can’t figure it out.” Her jabs at this person are clever and calculated. It’s as if she’s saying, “You royally screwed up and you know it.” A repeat-worthy song that feels fantastic AND has the aura of revenge??? SIGN ME UP!

After blowing up on TikTok in 2021, Vella has been putting out retro-inspired hits with an incredible degree of authenticity. The 18-year-old vocal prodigy has dedicated herself to putting out music that’s driven by the influence of Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin. Boasting around 100 million streams across all platforms, she’s truly a force to be reckoned with. With ‘Out of Control’, Vella is redefining her sound by mixing in a more modern pop production. Be on the lookout for her next album coming soon! I recommend her single ‘Sky Without Stars’ to hear more of the gritty edge in her voice!
