—Athens, Ga., cinematic pop duo Powerkompany have returned with yet another artful, storytelling music video for their song “Another One Born in New York,” from their album I Am More Than This.
The video, filmed and edited by frontwoman Marie Davon, is pieced together from footage Davon shot last year in New York, where her partner Andrew Heaton was preparing to run the New York Marathon. When the marathon was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, Davon and Heaton explored the city together, with Davon filming along the way. The scenes she captured in Times Square represent the eerie duality of the time, with business chugging along in some parts of the city while areas like the Lower East Side stood dark and deserted.
Also new from powerkompany is a mash-up, created by Davon, of the title track from I Am More Than This with Sleigh Bells’ “Kids.” Stripping away much of the instrumentation from her original track and pairing her vocals with Sleigh Bells’ aggressive, staccato beats, Davon breathes new life into the anger and fierceness that lurks in “I Am More Than This.” Check out the mash-up HERE.
We are still reeling from our successful CD release show at The World Famous in Athens, GA. We really appreciate all the support and love from our friends and fans. We’re also very excited and flattered that Paste Magazine premiered our music video “It’s Not the Last.” Check it out:

We are happy to announce the release of our first full length album “I Am More Than This” on May 21st, 2013! Georgia Music Magazine said, “Moody, ethereal … a promising record that leaves you eager to find out what more powerkompany has up its sleeve.”
