Song: “Hold On”
Artist: Alabama Shakes
Album: Boys & Girls
Here’s a slab of fun in the sun southern indie rock to get your weekend going. Light and Breezy guitar and piano lines combine with powerful female vocals to make a brand new song that has an “old soul” as the saying goes. Take a listen below:
When first listening to their EP last fall, it was clear this band was going places fast. Alabama Shakes took SxSW by storm, performing many times over the week, exciting music fans both young and old. Imagine it, a brand new band that combined the best elements of Soul/Motown and 1970s southern rock and translated them into a potent concoction of musical grit with modern indie rock sensibilities. Their debut album, Boys & Girls, is due out this Tuesday, April 9th. If all of it is this good, it will definitely be one that all music fans should check out on day 1.
