Nathaniel Rateliff has soul.
The American artist's performances blaze with honesty and integrity, a style which owes much to the work of Otis Redding, say, or Sam Cooke and Al Green.
Now the singer is set to pay homage to his roots. Forming Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, the songwriter's next EP will be released in co-operation with Caroline and re-vamped southern soul imprint Stax.
Out on June 29th, the rattling seven piece soul force will visit London's Lexington venue on June 22nd. By way of a preview, Clash is able to premiere the video for lead track 'Howling At Nothing'.
An inspired return, it finds Rateliff respecting his sources while also adding his own stamp, his own brand of soul. Check it out now.
