Reminiscent of The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, and The Kinks all at once, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals have a sound that won’t fit neatly in one genre, but has a beat, a physicality, and a mood. Potter says, “You have to either want to dance to it or cry to it. But there’s also a feistiness to these songs that’s completely unapologetic.” Over seven years and three albums, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals have grown from an uncommonly bright band into a force of nature. The band’s fourth studio album, The Lion The Beast The Beat, released in 2012, represents a rite of passage for a band that is knocking on the door of greatness. “This process was more painstaking than on any other record we’ve made, a complete labor of love and hate. I credit the Nocturnals for courageously jumping off that cliff with me,” Potter acknowledges. “We took a risk and I hope that resonates when people hear the album.”
