Power

Album: Kindness is The New Rock And Roll (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This rousing, guitar-driven anthem was inspired by an enormous lightning storm that took place as Peace recorded with Bat For Lashes producer Simon Felice in America. Frontman Harry Koisser said:

    "I watched a giant, pulsating, lightening bolt land near the farmhouse and I instantly associated it with the electricity and power of the kids we'd been quaking with for the last five years at our shows.

    I was inspired to write a song that was answer to their question. I guess it ended up being a call to arms. Power is a song about booting down the door to delirious glory and charging heart first into the worldwide banquet of love."
