While based in Toronto, Girl Pow-R is made up of young, powerhouse women who are from all parts of the globe, and now they are back with a new single, “Galaxy”.
The JUNO-nominated girl group — including Emma Bown from Hamilton, Cindy Kofman from Richmond Hill, and Carina Bianchini from Markham — have been inspiring audiences and motivating young people since bursting on the scene in 2017. The pop/alternative/dance outfit found one another on International Women’s Day, and have been leaving their indelible mark on the music community ever since.
Now they’re back with “Galaxy,” the eponymous lead track off their sophomore release. The electro-pop, alternative track is a metamorphosis into a new sonic era for the group. Produced by Jovan Jovanov and Ivan Jovanov IWAYO, the song speaks to the greater purpose of the group: reminding fans that nothing is impossible and that aiming for the stars means landing among the galaxy and new heights.
“‘Galaxy’ is all about leaving your mark and chasing after your dreams no matter how big they may be,” says Cindy. “We will learn to conquer the whole galaxy, as we are determined to make it! We want the listeners to know that we are coming out strong with our new music and plans, and we can’t wait to make our dreams come true!
“We hope to inspire everyone to go after their dreams no matter how big or small they are!”
The music and the messaging are appropriate for all ages, as Girl Pow-R continues to provide family-friendly music that’s both exciting to dance to and it provides uplifting messages with clean lyrics.
“We collaborate on the songwriting, but sometimes we will break off into groups,” Carina explains. “Our producer Jovan gives us ideas for the style of our song, and we come up with different concepts and experiment with lyrics; typically the music comes before the lyrics.
“I believe our music stands out because of the messages we promote that stand behind anti-bullying and self-confidence.”
The music video of “Galaxy” is slated to drop by early Spring 2022.
“‘Galaxy’ started from an idea about using outer space as a metaphor for all of the big things we want to achieve, and places we want to go,” says Carina. “There is no limit on what we and our fans can achieve. We hope that listeners can feel inspired to achieve their goals after listening to this song because if it’s possible to go to space, which the world has already done, then it’s possible to do anything.”
“‘Galaxy’ is basically a symbol for us (and our fans) achieving great things that are ‘out of this world,’” adds Emma. “The inspiration came from wanting to write a song about the future and how we can reach our goals.”
