With a name such as Lords of Power, the expectation is pretty much already set for what you can expect from the artist’s sound. But it is safe to say that they didn’t fail to deliver with their single “The Devil Wears Shoes”; – although it doesn’t hit quite in the same way as you would expect.
The single which featured on Lords of Power’s self-tired EP shows the friendlier, more charismatic side of Alt Rock. I’m sure we can all agree that there are already plenty of self-aggrandised vanity project artists around. Which is what makes Lords of Power so infinitely refreshing. I’m not entirely certain why I found lyrics such as “the devil wears shoes and he plays in a band but he only plays in minor chords” so endearing, but I can imagine that is just part of the unfathomable appeal of the up and coming artist.
You can check out the Lords of Power EP including The Devil Wears Shoes for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
