Power’s music never seems aggressively experimental, but it is the product of diverse influences.

The Guardian

Power’s second album, The Two Worlds, is less oblique than its predecessor: darker, more defiant, foregrounding her ongoing recovery from various serious experiences of abuse and the pressures of growing up in patriarchal Ireland.


Be it the lush, massive hills of Ireland or her genuine gratitude to just breath fresh air, The Two Worlds seems conjured up from the musician’s most isolated, profound moments. Lucky for us, she’s been kind enough to share them – and man, what gorgeous moments these are.

The Line of Best Fit

Stately, solemn, slow-burning and seriously beautiful, most of The Two Worlds isn’t far removed from its predecessor’s intimate templates. Only this time Power turns the decibels up as well as down.


The second album from the singer-songwriter is a dizzyingly isolated record, spare and serene music that gains momentum as it burrows deeper.

Melancholy tenderness. Like after you realize the mistakes you’ve made can’t be changed but you have to accept them and move on. Very pretty.
