Alabama Shakes

 Formed in Athens, Alabama in 2009, Alabama Shakes are one of Rough Trade's most recent signings. With an eponymous EP already to their name, the band are well on the way to establishing themselves as one of the powerhouses of fiery southern blues-rock. Fronted by the unique Brittany Howard, the band have gained comparisons to the likes of the Black Keys and the Drive-By Truckers in both their vocal and musical styles.

The album is jam-packed with 11 songs of pure blues inspired rock, opener Hold On sets the tone for the rest of the record., with it's soulfulness ripping up any modern pop song, with infectious rhythm and a bass line that'll have your head nodding. Brace yourselves for a revolutionary record.

Alabama Shakes' debut album  Boys & Girls will be released on 9th April internationally and on 10th April in the US. Pre-order the full length on iTunes here.
