Power - SUNRISE AND GOOD PEOPLE
hypnotic funk. In three minutes the track will fully takes hold of it’s listener, and guides you through an edgy adventure full of mystery,
seduction, and suspense.
If James Bond was a 14-hour drug induced dance party instead of a fictional spy series, “Power” on repeat might be the soundtrack.
The track draws the listener into a complex musical atmosphere, as its addictive grooving guitar riff seamlessly
converses with the alternating French and English vocals of the Montreal trio. Although the vocals largely blend into the
background, cries of “why me” powerfully cut through the noise of the layered guitar tracks. A simple dance beat and
bass line leave room for the complexity of the vocals and guitar nicely.
As the musical adventure continues, the guitar driven bridge builds up to the song’s climax. The listener is eased back
into the looping hypnosis of the verse, before the track gradually strips down its layers into the outro. You are then
released from the will of Sunrise and Good People’s “Power”a track that really is as much an experience as it is music.
