Observe & Control

Observe & Control was created by Tom Cohen (aka Gnuth) in 2002, in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
Originally formed under the name of Xanthippe, the project's current name is inspired

The band is, in reality, a one man project, with Tom composing, singing and producing
the songs while the Lyrics are written by Iris Idelson. In "Utopia", O&C have attempted to merge together danceable melodies with thought-provoking concepts.
The album may be viewed as homage to the rise and fall of utopian
