This week’s Song of the Week comes from rising dance-pop duo POWERS!
The LA-based twosome – made up of singer-songwriter-producer Mike Del Rio and singer-songwriter Crista Ru – first caught my attention with their super addictive The Knocks collaboration “Classic.” Since then, they’ve managed to pour out some more sweet tunage for us with the release of last year’s Legendary EP, an impressive 4-track collection of catchy, electro-pop gems.
This week, POWERS return with their very first output of 2016: “Sunshine,” the lead single off of their upcoming full-length debut (due out sometime this Fall via Republic Records). The track is a bouncy slice of retro-infused pop brimming with sunny synths and addictive melodies. Enlightening and completely uplifting, “Sunshine” is POWERS at the top of their game, a song that shares shining joy with perfect Summer timing.
“We started POWERS as a way to connect the world in our heads with the world around us.” Mike and Crista said in statement. “There’s never been a genre shaping our direction, just a love for sincere music. For this album we’ve been using new sounds to pursue a feeling of nostalgia. We are excited to share ‘Sunshine‘ with our fans as an introduction to the new music coming soon”
