MID-WEEK MUSIC MOMENT: POWERS


"I'm a fool running through your door, with my head and my heart at war"

I was first introduced to Powers as a "featuring" note on one of The Knocks' latest songs, "Classic." They fit into the electro-pop genre that I can't seem to get enough of these days, and I have pretty high hopes for this duo, even though they've only released a handful of songs so far. My favorite of those is their latest, "Loved By You."

Somewhat in the vein of groups like Years & Years, a cheerful sonic vibe and upbeat tempo belies lyrics that are a bit more melancholic than you'd imagine. The singer laments a relationship that doesn't work, singing "I just wanna be loved by you."

Go ahead, snap your fingers and nod your head along with Powers, and try not to think about all those unrequited loves in your life...
