The Underhill Family Orchestra, native to the Alabama delta, has been described as “outright anthemic,” taking their compositions to “idyllic places” that make you want to “paint your face, forget your age, and kiss a stranger.” With “the bare knuckled nature” of their sound and their command of the “intricate, melancholy and densely literate” themes in the songs they create, they invoke a “sense of riot” with their arm-swinging, foot-stomping, Appalachia-inspired sound that makes effort to “infuse sheer pop catchiness into rootsier, grittier elements” made up of sultry and soulful 4-part vocal arrangements. Theirs is a unique take on the southern sound for which Alabama is known. Their album, Tell Me That You Love Me, is available for streaming and download on ALL major platforms.
