Wildcard (week 3): Powers – Dance

Powers is the musical partnership of Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru. They have written songs for Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez and others, and I first saw them being credited in their own right on the 2014 track Classic by The Knocks (feat. Powers).

They have now announced their debut album Alpha, which is scheduled for release on 7 April. The promising first single is Dance, a damn fine slice of power(s) pop that combines pounding beats, heavy guitar strikes, cheesy ‘woo-ooo-ooos’ and lyrics where riots on the dance floor go hand in hand with social criticism. Or, in summary: a banger!
