We can count on POWERS to bring us the best funkastic alt pop tunes, as they’ve been doing now for quite some time. The Los Angeles based duo, consisting of Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru, are back with a new single named Just Kids, on which they go extra summery with pitched vocal chops and playful teasing finger snaps. In fact, they’ve gone a near tropical route on this infectious new song, on which Crista’s cooing is breathy and sexy, light and airy.  Just Kids is also awash in some of the 2000′s bright and gauzy R&B pop. About the song, POWERS commented, “We were both still living in New York at the time, carving out our own existence with each other and the city when the initial seed of the song started. “Just Kids” was partially inspired after reading Patti Smith’s book of the same title and going through our own journey as Patti did in the 70’s. There’s something about undressing someone, figuratively- and in reality, that can feel so playful and eternal. Creativity and connection are what keep us taller children after all and we wanted to write a song about that.” Atmospheric Just Kids is a wondrous anthem that feels like it has the capacity to take us to the ends of the earth. It feels limitless, like life did when we were young and naive, hopeful and tenacious. Just Kids is out now on Republic Records. Keep up with POWERS on their website, here.
