Soul may have originated in Memphis, but it infected bands from all around the South. It’s certainly not lost on The Nightowls from Austin, Texas. Today’s premiere is sure to get you on your feet, so tie on your dancing shoes and toss on “Get Up!”
Says The Nightowls frontman Ryan Harkrider: “‘Get Up!’ is our show-stopper. It’s got blasting horns, soulful vocals, and a classic break down section a la Wilson Pickett. At our live shows it tends to cause a frenzy with people clapping their hands and stomping their feet. ”
Check out the track below, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of the band’s new record, Fame Sessions, which is out September 4.
