Soulful debut delights from The Tibbs

Check out these awesomely soulful cats from Holland: "Record Kicks are extremely proud to present one of the hottest new names on the retro soul scene; The Tibbs! This combo is one of the most fascinating retro soul acts to ever come out of the Netherlands.

From the Motown’ish opener ‘Dog Days’ and floor-shaking tracks ‘Get Back Tuesday’ and ‘Next Time’, to the deep soul of ‘Wild Way’ and funk stormer ‘Suffocated’, singer Elsa Bekman - supported by a super tight big band - will impress everybody with her unique raw, gritty vocals.

Their debut album 'Takin Over' was produced by Paul Willemsen (Lefties Soul Connection), recorded at the Electric Monkey Studio in Amsterdam and mastered in Nashville by soul veteran Bob Ohlsson. 

The Tibbs started in 2012 taking inspiration from the golden age of soul music. In 2014 they self-released a demo EP and also released a 45 on German funk label Tramp Records.
