Powerkompany at the Double Door Inn tonight (10/17/2013)

Posted By on Thu, Oct 17, 2013 at 8:40 AM

From the ashes of Athens, Ga., quintet Venice is Sinking, Powerkompany was formed in 2011 by former Venice fiddle player/vocalist Marie Davon and her husband, Andrew Heaton, also a fiddle player and vocalist for the foot-stomping Packway Handle Band. But instead of the folksy, organic sounds of their respective bands, Davon and Heaton have created in Powerkompany a cinematic electro-pop band through which they typically explore dark themes. Written from the depths of drug and alcohol addiction, their 2013 debut full-length, I Am More Than This, is by turns gauzily futuristic and cuttingly plainspoken. Davon is beguilingly girlish, strumming her baritone ukulele a she sings about longing, fickleness and blame. Hooks don't abound here, but Davon and Heaton use their alluring stage presence - they're always impeccably dressed - and obvious chemistry to draw you in. $8-$10. Oct. 17, 9 p.m. Double Door Inn, 1218 Charlottetowne Ave. 704-376-1446.
