Alabama Shakes + Childhood
Friday 11th May @ HMV Institute

Alabama Shakes have delivered ‘Boys & Girls’—six of the songs from that initial Nashville session, and another five recorded during the rest of the year. From the heart-rending title song to such funky stomps as ‘Rise to the Sun’, the album demonstrates the sense of groove and space the band learned from their idols, along with a blistering force and emotion that simply can’t be learned.

Overwhelmed by the response they’ve already received, there is one perception of the band that they want to challenge. “A lot of people think we’re a soul revival act,” says Bass player Zack Cockrell. “That’s an honour to me, classic R&B is my favourite kind of music, but everybody has their own influences. Brittany is way more into rock and roll—she likes things pretty amped up most of the time.” The release of ‘Boys & Girls’ marks the arrival of a major new rock and roll band.

“Their raucous live shows are already the stuff of legend… the future is theirs for the taking” – NME




Childhood are a new London four piece who play psychedelic, shoe gaze laced pop. With recent support slots to Girls and gaining favourable comparisons to the likes of Yuck and Wavves , they are set to take the scene by storm with the release of their debut single ‘Blue Velvet / Semester’.
