“Powerful Word” is the lead single from Little Ditty, the sophomore release from Memphis-via-Chicago alternative/indie band Avon Dale, available everywhere today.

Polz’s voice shines, begging comparison to Ben Harper and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill. The record’s most memorable moments – “Powerful Word” among them – pair that voice with sharp phrasing, energetic melodic lines and witty, honest songwriting.

Polz admits that the meaning of “Powerful Word” is still a bit unclear. “Just preachin’,” he says. “It means something, but altogether, nothing. Still trying to figure that one out.”

At the very least, in an election year we can all relate to the song’s fourth verse: I'm much too old to be drinking on a night like this/But I'm far too young to bicker over politics/I took a chance, it's been a bit, have you heard?/Tequila is a hell of a word

A hell of a word indeed. Don’t miss Little Ditty, available via digital retailers everywhere today.
