Song of the Day #4,394: ‘Closer’ – POWERS

Fiona calls this track her “Hawaii song,” and it sure does have a gentle, Jack Johnson-esque vibe.

POWERS is a Los Angeles-based duo formed by Crista Ru and Mike Del Rio, who share vocal and instrumental duties. The band has released one EP (2015’s Legendary) and a handful of singles, with their debut studio album due sometime soon.

‘Closer’ has a different sound than most of the duo’s work. In fact, each of the dozen or so POWERS songs available for streaming has a unique sound. I look forward to hearing the album.

[Verse 1]
I caught a moment
And it caught me
Floating together, under the trees
We were sippin’ on moonlight
Drinking champagne
A couple freaks in the purple rain

[Pre-Chorus]
Some mistakes are worth making
Sometimes the time is worth wasting
Some heartbreaks are worth braving
I know, you know, you know

[Chorus]
I just wanna get closer
Closer to your body than somebody else
I just wanna get closer
Closer to your body than nobody else

[Verse 2]
Four in the morning
She wants to dance
Twirling the nighttime in her hands
We’ve got candy and kisses
Keeping us high
Until we make it to paradise, sing

[Pre-Chorus]
Some mistakes are worth making
Sometimes the time is worth wasting
Some heartbreaks are worth braving
I know, you know, you know

[Chorus]
I just wanna get closer
Closer to your body than somebody else
I just wanna get closer
Closer to your body than nobody else
I just wanna get closer

[Bridge]
The road to nowhere
Foot on the gas
The sun is watching
Having a laugh
So won’t you hold me like the sky holds blue
And I’ll keep singing this song for you

[Chorus]
I just wanna get closer (closer)
Closer to your body than somebody else
I just wanna get closer (closer)
Closer to your body than nobody else
I just wanna get closer

    I would say more John Mayer than Jack Johnson.

    Meanwhile, I’m curious how these artists get on Fiona’s radar.

    I really like this a lot. Makes me want to sit on the beach with a pina colada 😎
