What sets Chicago’s The Sometimes Family apart from other groups in this new soul era is their aim to bring back the vocally driven tune: the collaborative, harmonic group sound. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including the Fifth Dimension, the Staples Singers, the Jackson 5, and the Friends of Distinction, The Sometimes Family have a new EP out called Fun With Heartbreak.
