When Aubrey Haddard lifts, that voice breaking is Amy Winehouse all day long. The funky swing, the trilled vocal embellishments, even the guitar strum could be from a Winehouse gig in Kentish Town in the summer of 2004.
With her single I Should Know Better, Aubrey Haddard puts forth a pop anthem that takes heartbreak and turns it into a house party. We agree that her voice is "raw and hauntingly hypnotic". The visual for this would just be the city lights along Atlantic avenue; a cross-section of the filth and fever of a city mad with it's own energy.
Aubrey Haddard comes to us from Cambridge, MA. She has a number of dates coming up along the east coast from now until mid April.
