Diversions :: Le Switch on Blue-Eyed Soul

(Diversions, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, catches up with our favorite artists as they wax on subjects other than recording and performing.)

Since their inception Le Switch have been called a lot of things, from Waits-ian barroom growlers to whiskey-soaked, confessional, soul-pop.   Both fitting, but one common descriptor that always manages to find its way into the conversation is that of soul. Without question, the band has it. But what is soul exactly, and how does one articulate it to others? Below, Le Switch's Aaron Kyle ponders both questions.

Le Switch have a split 7" out at the end of the month---with LA compatriots Les Blanks (sample "How We Imagined It" below)---and a new album in the can coming out this summer.   Catch them in town before their tour: AD is presenting, and giving away a few pairs of tickets, to their April 22nd show at the Bootleg Theater. Leave your name and a valid email address to enter. Winners will be emailed/tickets available at will-call.
