It’s not difficult to see why fans of Dermot Kennedy are emotionally connected to his music. Kennedy is a storyteller. His talent for songwriting unmatched. On latest single ‘Power Over Me’, Dermot once again delivers unapologetic lyrics with his distinctive Irish grit, driven by the idea of an all-consuming love.
Talking about the song, Dermot explains: The whole song started with just that one idea, that sole lyric of ‘you’ve got that power over me’. The idea of being totally bewitched by somebody, to be totally under their spell, in a really good way. Just totally enamoured.
If ‘Power Over Me’ is anything to go by, 2019 looks set to be Dermot Kennedy’s breakthrough year.
The track arrives as Dermot Kennedy announces his biggest UK tour to date, starting at O2 Academy Bristol on 6th May.
