Video: Kendra Morris – “Pow”

Kendra Morris gets her Amy Winehouse on something heavy and we aren’t mad at it. “Pow,” like many of Winehouse’s songs, tells a story of a manipulative and destructive relationship that she just can’t seem to cut herself loose from. The song is off her debut album, Banshee, and the video features animations James Works who did the famed animation for “Lightworks” by Dilla.

Gonna be a problem trying to get this one out of our head!
