Song of the Week: "Under Control"

I couldn't go anywhere this week without hearing Parachute on the radio! Whether it was at my birthday dinner with friends in New York or the radio on my drive home from a show, Parachute have been taking over the airwaves. While current single, "She Is Love" is heating up the charts, I stumbled upon their latest music video for catchy track, "Under Control." I think you'll find the video amusing.

When interviewing frontman Will Anderson nearly two years ago, I asked him about "Under Control," to which he said:

"I had a crush on this girl for probably about three years all through college. She had no idea who I was. So, I wrote that song in the off chance that she would hear it and realize it was about her. But unfortunately, she did not and she still does not know who I am. I don’t think she has any idea that she has that song written about her."

I love Parachute :) Saw them a couple of years ago when they were Sparky's Flaw, and then again last year when they had officially become Parachute, but before they were "popular" - they're a fun group of guys, aren't they? :) Glad to see them doing well...


Such great guys! They were one of the first bands I interviewed for my blog and I've enjoyed watching them grow over the years. Pretty insane now I can hear their songs on the radio!
