Description

Louisiana’s Seratones – fronted by the gospel-trained powerhouse frontwoman A.J. Haynes – released their remarkable debut album in 2016, leading to mass critical praise, a national television debut on CBS This Morning, an NPR Music Tiny Desk concert, as well as tours with the likes of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. It was touring with the dearly departed Charles Bradley, however, that proved to be the most telling part of that journey. His influence can be felt throughout their sophomore album, the soul-infused Power.

On this album, Haynes showcases how vulnerability can be powerful, as her songs explore her years fighting for reproductive rights and serving as a counselor at one of Louisiana’s last remaining abortion providers, her advocacy for racial equality, her struggles to adapt and overcome, her love of poetry, and much more. “We went through a pretty dramatic shift with this record,” says Haynes. “The band lineup, the creative process, the sound: all of it changed in ways that really reflected our growth and evolution.”

It’s a powerful return, full of bluster and attitude, designed to stir the pot. Power has soul, swagger and incredible musicianship – great stuff.
