Powers: “Gimme Some”
I don’t know too much about Powers, a new pop duo from “NY/ LA.” But what I do know is that their song “Gimme Some” has been perpetually stuck in my head since I first heard it on this MasterCard/J. Crew commercial. Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru have crafted a near perfect indie-pop song with “Powers.” Heavy on the pop side of things, with big production and bigger hooks, the song manages to stay just left-of-center enough to keep it interesting. With its bright piano loop and punchy sampled brass, “Gimme Some” feels half-way between Icona Pop and Passion Pit. And while it sounds written with sync potential in mind, it’s an undeniably feel-good song perfect for roof-top nights or windows-down car rides.
While we wait for more pop perfection from Powers, you can get a free download of “Gimme Some” on their website.
