The Sextones - "Better Late Than Never"

There's been a resurgence of late 60's/early 70's style soul lately, and our latest discovery is The Sextones. The Nevada based quartet have a new single out, "Better Late Than Never." As with most neo-soul out these days, The Sextones wear their twentieth century influences proudly while still moving the genre into the modern day. The song doesn't sound like it was made fifty years ago, but sounds like it was made today and heavily influenced by music made back then. It's a smooth soul jam, and you may need to check for your pulse if you can't get into this.

Bassist Alexander Korostinsky says of their upcoming album:

“The ability to be vulnerable when writing your music is an important ingredient for any record. You can tell when an artist is being genuine and for a long time, we felt a little insincere with what we were doing. After working with Kelly, we started noticing that the music we were all making now was truly and finally ourselves.” 

You can listen to "Better Late Than Never" below. Love Can't Be Borrowed is due out September 29 on Record Kicks, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on The Sextones, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
