“So We Went Electric” is an easy way to understand Powell’s vision. It begins with restrained chaos, feints the “drop” a couple times then lets rip. Guitars shriek. Noise randomly soils the mix. The drums and synths form a militaristic stomp. The mid-section peak could best be described as nuts. “The things that I get excited about now are a sense of exhilaration, surprise, intensity and propulsion,” Powell said. “These reactions you have to music that takes you off guard—that’s great. When you don’t know which way stuff’s going. It’s about playfulness and trying to remember what club music is about, or for me, anyway. It wasn’t meant to be this dystopian thing. It was meant to be liberating, uplifting, exhilarating, exciting and sexual.”
