Dependent on completely visual references by yourself, and on 1st impressions only, Jack Powers is a follower of the Bowie approaches, an enigmatic trickster-like chameleon whose rambunctious look is in and of itself the functionality, or at minimum a appreciable section of it. A correct blend between the plastic arts and the subtler, nobler things of melody and defeat.
The Shock-glam (or Glam-shock) prophet comes in a pastiche of artsy pop notes and exposed flesh highlighted by dizzying main colours and intense eye make-up that reminds a single of a prowling were-panther creature out of a daytripper’s fever aspiration. It is really no surprise that he would be highlighted on the protect of PAPER alongside Madonna herself.
With a title like JACK POWERS (which he someway did not style in all-caps), it is no shock that there is this unmistakable uncooked electrical power and magnetism to every single glimpse you capture of his neo-classical ripped mick jagger physique, and then there’s the sound.
A musician, poet, classically-trained dancer, and vogue designer, who honed his expertise at LaGuardia High University, Central Saint Martins, and Paris’ über-chic Manko Cabaret, Powers techniques his perform with a eager eye for depth, a sharp wit, and pure love.
‘Jack Powers’ might be his authentic identify, or most likely it is a tongue-in-cheek reference to a electricity resource due to the fact the unrelenting electro-thumping of his new music undoubtedly has hydraulic amounts of energy powering it. He’s unapologetically pop, Queer-pop even, with all its major Eurodance modules attached for that much larger-than-lifestyle seem that reverberates from deep underground lairs and spills onto streets hectic with nightlife. His most recent launch “Forever” can take all of this up a notch, cementing Jack as an aggressively irreverent ‘chic provocateur’ eager to destroy every norm he can with a wild eye for re-imagination. The visual vocabulary of this new songs video is borderline ‘late-roman’ in its palpable lust for luxurious and unique pleasures. So provocative and wild is he, I imagine he’ll make Girl Gaga blush.
“Forever” is Jack’s opening move in 2023, which he vows to take by storm one NYC nightclub at the time on his way to launch an EP and arrive out into the mainstream with a ferocious perspective.
