POWERS - Loved By You

This song is so good that when I first heard it, I thought it was a cover of a very famous band.*** Then I did some research (the Internet rules guys!), and discovered this is a shiny brand new one. I swear this is the swan-song Hoku never wrote. The vocals are so sugary I want to go snort some Pixie Sticks. The best part is, there's so much more to this band besides poppy goodness. "T4L" you may be saying as you roll your eyes, "You say this about literally every artist you post about. Please elaborate" Well fuckers, the production rocks here. Warpy synths and fantastic percussion are the only things I can describe with my teeny brain, but there's lots of other stuff going on that sounds amazing. Secondly, the tail-end of the chorus takes this from a B to an A+. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to 1:30. The yelly falsetto adds an edge that makes "Loved By You" straight up bad-ass. Who am I kidding, Hoku never could have made this song. I NEED MORE, POWERS.

***I cannot put my finger on it, but this song does remind me of another one I can't identify. How descriptive! Maybe one day someone will sue Powers for copyright infringement and I'll finally figure it out.
