SONG PICK: Ian Sweet – Power
“I wanna feel the power of holding no-one every again.” Where is L.A. singer/songwriter Jilian Medford aka Ian Sweet going with her latest track “Power?” Not depending on anybody can be an advantage. She says: “’Power’ is a manifestation of strength; something I was looking up and looking towards. I wrote this song to try to get closer to trusting the magnitude of myself as a solitary being.” The song brings her point home with a driving pattern of alternating melancholic guitar lines and crunchy riffs. After all, everything has its ups and downs.
“Power” is out now on Polyvinyl together with Ian Sweet’s previous singles “Sword” and “Dumb Driver”. Listen to our Song Pick of the Day below:
