Originally from Los Angeles, the couple of musicians of PWR CPL transports us in a soul-electronic with elegance and originality with their first EP BLKS: FEEL.
Created in 2017, PWR CPL (Power Couple) is composed of Jon Lall and Summer Jasmine. This very nice duo amazes us with their creativity and artistic maturity. The two members write, compose and sing; what a beautiful parity with these two.
It is rare to immediately feel the different musical influences of a group especially when they are multiple such as soul, rap, pop or jazz without one taking precedence over another. Jon meticulously captures each other's strengths in order to offer productions where instruments have an important and decisive place.
Their new mini project composed of 4 tracks, entitled BLKS , will be released in the form of 4 parts, the first available is BLKS: FEEL. It is carried by the limpid voice of Summer Jasmine which very quickly marks the sound identity of PWR CPL. Jon, also on vocals, always has his soothing side when he accompanies Summer and it is the strength of PWR CPL, a fusion and an incredible understanding between the two protagonists.
Special mentions to the titles "Alone in the same room" and "Decisions" which take us in a whirlwind of sounds like a timeless journey filled with good vibrations.
