Quick Hitters:: Powers - EP


I was originally going to post on Toronto outfit (they are a duo, maybe? Perhaps one guy with some friends? I don’t actually know) Powers mainly because the video/first single from their EP is entitled Second Summer, and that seemed appropriate considering it was 15 degrees outside in Halifax this morning. Unfortunately, it began raining sideways at lunch, and so that approach didn’t make as much sense, but the catchiness of Powers 4 song debut effort was enough to convince me that I was on the right track anyway.


As you can tell from that opener, I don’t have much info on Powers, and although it’s been about a month since I first checked them out and made a note to get back to them, I’m certainly a fan of their EP after listening to it a bunch of times today. The sound on offer here is mostly a mix of electronic and indie rock instrumentation, with lovely vocals harmonies, both male and female, layered on top. But even within the space of the 4 songs, there’s enough variety (the first 2 lean more towards the electronic side, the latter 2 more traditional indie rock-esque) to simultaneously keep the listener’s attention and suggest that a full-length Powers album would be an exciting affair.


Get ready for it, here comes the cringe-inducing closer: So what are you waiting for, power-up your week with Powers!

You might have been familiar with their previous incarnation, The Ghost Is Dancing. Been loving this EP, and also looking forward to hearing what they’ll bring to a full length.
