POWERS — the rising alt-pop duo comprised of Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru — have felt the strain of such an ordeal, which they recount on their aptly titled new single “Heavy”.
“Heavy” is one of the songs on Powers’ upcoming debut album, Alpha. It will hit you hard with its funky bass and tropical synths.
In a statement Ru offers more details on the true-to-life story behind the track:
“Heavy is about being addicted to something or someone that you know is bad for you… I had an experience where I fell so hard for this girl while in a long distance relationship with someone that I really loved. It was the first time in my life where I was having a legit battle between logic and desire. I didn’t want to screw up a relationship that I knew was healthy just for something that was purely sexual. But it drove me crazy because I wanted to be around this girl and we tried to keep it platonic but she would always put me back in the same predicament every time we hung out. It was ridiculous, we couldn’t be just friends, so we stopped hanging and I had to just keep the fantasy tucked away in the back of my mind.”
The heart wants what it wants … but unfortunately, sometimes at the most inconvenient moments.
