Dermot Kennedy, is the talk of the year. Since independently releasing music, to showcasing at SXSW in 2018 he is keeping momentum with consistent releases. His powerful vocals have gained him millions of fans. His poetic verses, artful visuals and dynamic musical flow keeps him on top charts.
He released, “Power Over Me”, yesterday and its a must listen with a video so well telling a story of growth and overcoming hardship. The video begins with subtle glimpses of the struggles taking place in what appears to be a third world village. Two young women surviving on the bare minimum with an alcoholic guardian who can’t keep the lights on. The older woman escapes daily to train, and punch her pain into a punching bag. She is working to provide for her family, and sweats out the sadness we can see in her eyes. In this visual story of progress we see her victory in the boxing rink which leads us to the happy ending, matching the strength of Dermot Kennedy’s lyricism.
