the atlanta artist's debut is a breath of fresh air: an artist with a real gift for classic soul music stylings but little obvious interest in nostalgia.

even though the sound of these tunes certainly harkens back to vintage soul (mostly of the southern variety), Harding doesn't suggest he's slavishly trying to replicate the past. Instead, this music fuses the sounds of the 60s & early 70s while injecting them with an edgy energy that's solidly contemporary. His phrasing is warm, flexible & expressive & on these songs, he sings with the band, not over them; his interplay with the musicians is smart & full of fire. Harding’s style was cultivated in Atlanta, where he sang backup for Cee-Lo Green & befriended the Black Lips (he plays with Cole Alexander in Night Sun). for fans of recent black keys output, alabama shakes, st.paul & the broken bones or cee-lo green.
