Adele’s “I’ll Be Waiting” is one of my favorite songs on her Grammy-winning masterpiece 21. So I was intrigued to see one of my friends had posted a great cover of it by Love in Stockholm, a Boston-based Rock ‘n Soul band that formed in 2007 and has toured with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Nigel Hall.
Love in Stockholm is currently working on a new album to follow 2010’s Kings of Ransom and recorded this live Adele cover during a break in their recording sessions. The up-and-coming band has a big, funky but stylish rock sound that incorporates brass and guitar yet pays homage to the classic rock of Joe Cocker and Sly and the Family Stone. Check ’em out and judge for yourself!
