Powell
"Wormhole"

UK Promos

EDM upstart Powell has has been busy with a project called New Beta, a series of vinyl-only LPs with an experimental edge. Track titles such as ‘Dogs on Acid’ should give you an inkling what to expect from this ‘Wormhole’ promo, then.

There’s no shortage of E numbers in The Sacred Egg’s five-minute sesh. Assorted revellers down luminescent pints, shots, and chasers. As for the main course? Rainbow-soaked kebabs and chips absorb the booze - keeping them down is another matter.

Woozy handheld footage and Disney-style animation produce a cartoonish night on the razz. Combined with Powell’s polyphonic blitz, viewers may feel like they’ve downed one snakebite too many.

That's never seen being a foul. Clearly took the ball.

Powell's take-no-prisoners brand of electronica takes a hypnotic turn in 'Jonny' - named after the track's vocalist, a former planner / strategist at Weiden + Kennedy. The accompanying promo is the brainchild of the same agency's creative incubator collectively known as The Kennedys, and features a host of submitted clips of folk smashing melons with their heads.

There's no getting around it; this track by 'no wave' electronics dude Powell is a sonic nightmare. The visceral kick its relentless looping drums give you stops hurting after a bit, and once you get numb, you get comfortable. Dissonant and crushing like a mutant insect grinding its teeth, it throws in shards of this and shavings of that with much the same result as you'd get by lobbing teaspoons in a microwave
