Them Vibes
When Them Vibes co-founders, singer Larry “Brother Love” Florman and guitarist Alex Haddad first moved from New York City to East Nashville almost a decade ago, the two didn’t really know what to expect. Ten years later, Them Vibes – which now includes guitarist Kyle Lewis – are a central part of Music City’s thriving rock scene. The title track of the band’s most recent album, 2017’s Electric Fever, offered a preview to Them Vibes’ forthcoming five-song EP (out February 21st), which answers their own musical question, Why the Funk Not. It’s a collection of tracks designed, as Brother Love puts it, quoting Keith Richards, “to put the roll back into rock…to get people up and dancing.” The band drew inspiration from ‘60s and ‘70s icons such as James Brown, Sly & the Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Tower of Power and Chicago. The first song from the EP, “Right On,” featuring vocals by Maggie Rose – whom they frequently tour and collaborate with – came
out late last year, garnering airplay on Nashville’s indie/Triple A powerhouse WRLT Lightning 100, which ranked it #4 on its list of Top 200 Songs of the Year, and the most recent release “Powers Collude” is a plea for unity – especially apt for today’s polarized society. Them Vibes have already performed several of the songs in a live setting to great reaction and look forward to a hefty touring schedule, having shared bills in the past with the likes of Cage the Elephant, Lake Street Dive, The Marcus King Band, Allen Stone, Train, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joan Jett, The Flaming Lips, Robert Plant, Heart, Cheap Trick, Trey Anastasio and St. Paul & the Broken Bones, among many others.
