Alternative rock quintet, Climate Control has released a music video for their newest single, “Little Mess”. The new single follows the footsteps of the group’s last single “Ghosts,” as the melodic evolution of the band continues to reach another level. Produced by Clinton Watts (Bury Tomorrow, Truth & Its Burden) and mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping with Sirens, Issues), “Ghosts” and “Little Mess” chart new waters for Climate Control.
Vocalist, Nicolas Gonzalez, had this to say about the new song, “‘Little Mess’ marks a change in pace for us; a little less aggressive with a heavier focus on melody, while still being energetic. Lyrically, it deals with the concept of loss, and coming to terms with the inevitability of that loss. It’s a tough subject, but one that we’ve all had to & will have to face at some point.”

About Climate Control:
Sitting around and waiting for the stars to align is pointless; you need to create your own luck. This is what Johannesburg-based post-hardcore/rock band Climate Control has done. For nearly a decade, the group has crafted and honed its sound, paid the harsh dues and built a loyal fan base. Through hard work and unrepentant belief in what they do, the act has developed into one of the hottest bands on the South African music scene and a must-see live act.
Drawing comparisons to international juggernauts Underoath, Bring Me the Horizon, and Hands Like Houses, Climate Control loves to live out of the box, merging the best of punk, alternative rock and post-hardcore into one mesmerizing sonic showcase. This diversity and reputation for tight, thundering shows is what has lead the determined act to share the stage with a bevy of musicians, including Biffy Clyro, Affiance, Trivium, Killswitch Engage and Protest the Hero, as well as performances at major local festivals like RAMfest and Krank’d Up.
So what is the secret to the band’s longevity and escalating success? Climate Control vocalist/guitarist Nic Gonzalez reveals the truth: “We refuse to write the same song twice. If it sounds generic or boring, it needs to get scrapped. In addition, we stick to our guns and have faith that there will always be a place for progressive, melodic and emotional music, regardless of whatever the flavour of the week may be. The idea behind Climate Control is to make music that will rouse the emotions of our listeners. Without that connection, there is nothing else.”
With this sort of attitude, it’s no surprise that the addictiveness of Climate Control is itching to become a global phenomenon.
