Controllar is an American/Israeli indie-rock trio based in Amsterdam.
Lead by Anat Spiegel's unconventional vocals, Controllar' s music evokes shards of electro-noise swallowed by punk beats. The band members are punk drummer Gur Spiegel (Lea Katamin), computerwizard and bassist Thomas Myrmel, and vocal artist and guitarist Anat Spiegel. Combining an expressive vocal approach together with elements of electronic rock, Controllar's sound is unique within the rock scene. Their musical inspirations rangefrom established sounds such as Nina Simone and Portishead, to cutting edge, lo-fi american bands like She Keeps Bees and Le Butcherettes. Controllar is known for their stunning stage presence, and was described as one "you absolutely have to see live!" by the Netherlands most popular music website (3voor12).
The band toured the USA multiple times, as well as Spain, Portugal, Germany,Norway, Netherlands, Belgium and Japan. They appeared in festivals such as Innersound (Bucharest) and venues like Le Poisson Rouge (NYC), Levontin7 (Tel Aviv), Revolver(Oslo) & Concertgebouw (Amsterdam).
