Hold On – Alabama Shakes

I’ve been a bit obsessed with this song over the last couple of weeks. Specifically 22 year old Brittany Howard’s voice, reminiscent of both Janis Joplin (circa Big Brother and The Holding Company) and Nina Simone. Just gorgeous. Alabama Shakes‘ debut album, Boys & Girls, is out now on Rough Trade Records.
