Exclusive Artist Review: Twill Distilled – “Power” Single

Washington DC’s Twill Distilled blasted onto the market seven years ago and immediately began hitting the ground running with her hypnotic and innovative stylization along with her distinctively captivating image. Wearing several hats in the industry as a rising artist/producer and rapper, Twill Distilled has a dynamic signature sound that is unparalleled when it comes to versatility, honing a craft that touches on originality and familiarity; giving her audience a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable among the genres we have come to know and love today. She’s incredibly inventive, and it’s made all the more apparent when it comes to her newest banger of a single, “Power”.

This song does absolute justice to its title and lives up to its content in whole. It’s a hypnotically visceral Pop/EDM track that truly gives Twill Distilled all the room she needs to showcase her amazingly precise mid-to-high range vocal melodies in the most effective way possible. It’s a song that parallels perfectly between its production and performance value without outdoing itself in any way, brilliantly concocting a futuristic electronic flavor that shines a light on every notable element of the song in both Twill’s vocal ability and writing structures. The intro of this song has ridiculous Christina Aguilera vibes with a middle eastern aura that gives it an exotic edge, then blasts into a beat structure that has an energy factor not usually heard in the electronic world. But it’s truly her vocals that live up to this song’s title, you don’t just hear a bunch of post production theatrics, but a truly talented vocalist with incredibly precise breath control, melody structure ability and ridiculous performance value. She has a rapping ability that is not only dynamic in its flow, but completely original in its execution. You’ve never heard anything like her, she’s a completely fresh sound among the female rapper spectrum.

This song’s aura and atmosphere is incredibly dynamic and inventive, serving up a very multifaceted and multilayered sound that diligently showcases Twill Distilled in a way that is not only effective, but also delivers that staying power where the song actually stays with you even long after it’s over. It’s definitely a single you will not only have on repeat, but will also entice you to do a deep dive into her career and discography altogether. Artists in the EDM genre are dime a dozen these days, but Twill Distilled truly proves she is a standout of her calibre with this song, and will definitely keep you at the edge of your seat with what she has in store in her future releases. You’ll become an instant fan after giving this a listen.

“Power” is available now on all major platforms and we truly can’t recommend this one highly enough. You’ll thank us later.
