The latest single from The Helltones don't sound like what you'd expect them to based on their name. The Oakland garage rockers go straight up soul and R&B on "When We're Moving." This song is pure vintage soul. It sounds like it could be a lost track from fifty to sixty years ago. But what sets "When We're Moving" apart from other modern vintage soul songs is just how rough it sounds. While most others are polished and shimmering smooth, The Helltones have an unexpected edge to their song, making it sound like a truly underground forgotten classic. By the time the horn kicks in, you'll be won over.
