Have you ever been in love? That true, romantic connection can feel like being under a spell – drawn to someone’s presence and completely magnetized by them. It can make you feel a little bit crazy, but there’s something wonderfully intoxicating about it. Substream favorite and rising Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy addresses this very feeling in his new song, “Power Over Me,” and the track is just as mesmerizing as the feeling of being swept away.
“Power Over Me” debuted as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record In The World” on her BBC Radio 1 Show today, and premiered online on Complex. Dermot says about the song, “The whole song started with just that one idea, that sole lyric of ‘you’ve got that power over me.’ The idea of being totally bewitched by somebody, to be totally under their spell, in a really good way. Just totally enamoured.” Listen to “Power Over Me” below or on the streaming service of your choice here.
Currently on a world tour, Dermot Kennedy will be returning to the US this fall for the Keep The Evenings Long Tour. All shows are completely sold out. Take a look at the dates below and head to his website for more info.
