Make way for Thunderbitch. With a forceful presence and gritty sound, the band sounds just as you’d expect from the name. The iconic Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard, leads the charge on this side project.
On Thunderbitch, Howard lets out her wild side: a dose of unfiltered rock ‘n’ roll as she sings about leather jackets, parties, guitars and…rock ‘n’ roll. Supporting Howard are members of Nashville’s Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Masks (who I coincidentally first wrote about in 2011).
Thunderbitch’s debut self-titled album can be streamed in full on their website. Listen to the vehement “Leather Jacket” below.
