Emma Donovan & The PutBacks
By AJ on December 14, 2015
Now, here’s something pretty special: gorgeous soul that, even though it sounds like it’s come directly from Motown in the 70s, is actually from Australia in 2014. Emma Donovan & The PutBacks perfectly captures the elegance, gentleness and rawness of the era with this fantastic track (and album) without feeling like it’s just pandering to a retro style. Rather, it feels wonderfully genuine in a way that few modern throwbacks tend to, thanks in part to The PutBacks’ perfectly balanced instrumentation, but mostly due to Emma’s stunning voice. More, please!
