If you’re in the market for some gospel-infused southern-rock-influenced music with a dash of smoky soul, well, Alabama Shakes may fit the bill.
The band’s single “Hold On” from their 2012 debut Boys and Girls is available for free on Amazon. Get it.
The band looks straight from the high school garage (I especially like the bassist), but vocalist Brittany Howard’s voice is like a siren.
The video is from the band’s performance on Letterman. If you make it to the end, answer me this: is Letterman’s reaction genuine, or just a good acting job?
I’m curious of your answer.
