Winona Oak has released her new EP alongside video for 'Control'
Winona Oak has released her debut EP, Closure, anchored by spellbinding new single 'Control' and an accompanying video that plays on obsession.
Winona says, “ ‘Control’ is about meeting someone that makes you weak in your knees and never knowing how they actually feel about you. You make risky decisions, act irrationally and tolerate things you normally wouldn’t. You’re feeling nervous, insecure and are constantly afraid that they are gonna leave you. Oh and this is when you learn - the difference between love and obsession. For the video we wanted to target this hopeless feeling with a twisted sense of humour."
Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden on a small crop of land called Sollerön - known as the Island of the Sun - Winona Oak is every bit as enchanting as her origin story. With a childhood spent encountering more animals than people, she grew up a trained horse acrobat and pursued creative expression however she could, writing poetry and songs from a young age. Born into a musical family, Winona sang throughout her youth and began playing violin at 5 years old and piano at 9 years.
