Check out “Another One Born In New York” off I Am More Than This, a gorgeous track from Athens, Georgia dream-pop duo Powerkompany’sdebut LP.
The song was inspired by some unusual circumstances (or, if you will, a typically normal day in the teeming metropolis of New York City.) Band members Marie Davon and Andrew Heaton met a girl who wanted to get married — to both of them.
“Maybe it was all a joke, maybe she was serious or maybe it was a little bit of both—who knows?” recalls Heaton. “She was from New York. She’d been a model, was a talented photographer and her father had been a Broadway producer. She sort of started courting Marie and me as if we were one person. It was madness, really.”
“As unusual as it was,” Davon says, “we all seemed to be on the same wavelength for a while. And then at some point, we weren’t anymore. Sometimes you never figure out how you got there, or why you’re not there anymore. We wonder if she still thinks of us, keeps up with us, or would ever notice something like this article.”
I Am More Than This is out May 7 on Mazarine Records. Listen here.
