For POWERS, bringing songs to life means tapping into their own eclectic backgrounds — which span from playing in punk bands in New York City to co-writing for the likes of Kylie Minogue and Icona Pop — and taking a collage-like approach to constructing crystalline pop. Citing the cut-and-paste art of Robert Rauschenberg and Terry Gilliam among their longtime influences, POWERS piece together chopped-up live instrumentation, synths, samples, and beats into a sound that’ s intricately composed but graced with timeless pop simplicity. And on their debut EP Legendary (praised by Nylon as “ rich with disco-funk pop that revels in its own genre-bending light” ), the duo deepen that sound by infusing each track with potent feeling, from effervescent self-assurance on “ Hot” to epic lovesickness on “ Loved By You.”

Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and actress Bridgit Mendler is set to release her highly anticipated NemesisEP on November 18th. Upon sharing lead single “ Atlantis,” the track hit #2 on Spotify’s Viral Chart, #1 on HypeMachine, andgarnered over four million streams across platforms. Bridgit also revealed the official “ Atlantis” video with VICE’s Noisey who dubbed it “ a masterwork in craft and atmosphere.” Bridgit Mendler had already released a platinum single (“ Ready or Not” ), dropped an album that went Top 30 on the Billboard charts and No. 1 on iTunes (Hello My Name Is...), and twice toured the U.S. Yet when she began working on her first studio recording in four years, she was nervous. “ I had been performing and promoting for so long that I hadn’t caught up and figured out who I was. I wasn’t the same as the girl who made my debut album.” She wanted her music to reach a new depth of vulnerability, of transparency—and she knew she had to do this by exploring her personal heartbreak through her love of writing. “ Each of my songs,” explains the L.A.-based artist, “ would be based on an unfiltered story from my life. This is what I have gone through and this is who I am because of it.”
