Boys & Girls – Alabama Shakes

Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne


Alabama Shakes showed that soul is still very much alive and especially with a gritty sound is irresistible. Especially the groovy and intensely sung Hold On by singer / guitarist Brittany Howard was appreciated and it is therefore no surprise that Boys & Girls kicked off with that song. Alabama shows soon afterwards with Hang loose that they have even more hits in house. A genius swinging riff, supported by a rock solid rhythm section and Howard who is given all the space to sing the stars from the sky like a soul diva from the street. Musically it sometimes reminds of a slightly less sophisticated version of The Black Keys, which makes it sound all the more organic. Add a singer like Brittany Howard and you have a new soul sensation in your hands.


The debut is also musically astonishing: Their casual, soulful Retro-Swamp-Rock doesn't let you guess its creation date." (Audio, May 2012)

"Your soulful swamp blues rock sounds rough, straightforward, like the tonal benefits of analog equipment." (stereoplay, May 2012)
