Every now and then a song comes along that reminds you why you love music. It gives you goosebumps. From the first drone of the organ, to the drums, to the beautifully vintage reverb-laden guitars, the lovely hooks from Heath Fogg. To Brittany Howard’s voice!? To the way they all look. No sense of cool here. It’s all about the music. Hold On by Alabama Shakes is four minutes of pure, unfettered musical bliss. I challenge you not to fall head over heels in love with this song.
