POWERS is a band that has not gotten a ton of attention. I hope to change that today.
Their Wikipedia page is very sparse, but here's what I have been able to find out about the band:
1) Their two principle members, Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru, started off as songwriters for other artists, and they have a number of Wicked Guilty Pleasures to their credit.
2) The duo got their big break when they appeared on a single with The Knocks - we'll have to feature that here sometime, but today, I wanted to give them their due.
3) Their music has been described in many multi-adjective ways. I won't add to that pile. I will say that a male/female vocal duo that shares the duties so evenly and so well is rare, refreshing, and energetic.
4) They slay live.
