Dermot Kennedy – Power Over Me

With a voice evocative of a contemporary folk-rock giant and lyrical finesse that rivals poet greats of the genre, Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy is a force to be reckoned with in his own right on latest single “Power Over Me.”

At first blush the young Dubliner’s weathered baritone could be seemingly confused with Marcus Mumford’s, but that comparison quickly fades as a truly unique presence looms by first verse’s end. An earnest energy marked by stirring strings begins to emerge as an undercurrent of purposeful percussion builds, erupting into a full fledged anthem bathed in the soulful pinings of a should-be-star.
