“Sheer Power” – Plush

Bay Area band, Plush, is aptly named. On “Sheer Power,” the first single from their upcoming EP, Please, glimmering guitars and gentle drumming simmer to a gorgeous peak midway through track. Lead vocalist, Karli Roberts-Helm, told the Fader a little about her inspiration for the song, “I’ve always wanted to write a song about my sexuality, more so sex specifically and feeling empowered through the act.” “Sheer Power” effectively captures feelings of sensuality and vulnerability while finally transitioning to the emotive celebration of empowerment that is the song’s climax.
