Alabama Shakes Vibe teaser

NEW IN VIBE: Fans of soulful rock can't help but be cheered by the rise of ATO's Alabama Shakes, who enter our Vibe-Raters roundup this week at #5. The critical darlings—fronted by powerhouse frontwoman Brittany Howard—capped off a great year by scoring three Grammy nods, including Best New Artist, and their "Hold On" is getting a second (much bigger) bite at the PoMo apple, led by big love from KROQ, KKDO, KNDD, Live 105 and Sirius XM Alt Nation; it should begin its assault on Hot Adult 1/21. The song's YouTube clip has won over 4m views, and Rolling Stone dubbed "Hold On" its #1 Song of the Year for 2012. Another track, "Hang Loose," is #1 Most Added at Triple A. The band kills live, and their sold-out U.S. trek 3/1-3/16 is sure to cause more swooning. You will also find them rocking the 2/8 MusiCares Springsteen pre-Grammy event. And they will rock you. And your face. (1/10p)
