The band delivers a swampy, southern sound with a tinge of punk passion and vocalist and guitarist Brittany Howard is the real deal. Channeling Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Amy Winehouse, she knows how to make you feel the blues right down into your bones. Make sure to check out the self produced, debut album Boys and Girls out via ATO Records on April 10.
In the meantime, here is a lil' sumthin for you to get a taste of the Shakes.
Here is a genius session of "I Found You", track 2 off of their forthcoming album.
