Ugh, Alice Russell is so filthy with it! Her band is sick too! I spotted this video over at SoulBounce and you may remember hearing about Russell here quite a while ago. In this video, we have the pleasure of getting front row seats to a live performance of the song “Breakdown” which is rumored to be on her upcoming LP.
The IPS and I share a love for yt soul, especially when it comes from powerful belters such as Alice Russell. This song is no different as it combines the powers of British soul with the funky tremble of a church organ lifted by Russell’s emotive vocals. A sheer winner! I for one can’t wait for a new album. Pot of Gold is still in rotation over here.
Sidenote: Please get to the 2 minute mark where she absolutely takes it to churh! That’s real soul right there!
