Alabama Shakes: Sound & Colour

It literally sounds like the band has used all the colours in the crayon box for this release.

Sound & Color is an extremely apt title for Alabama Shakes sophomore record, as it literally sounds like the band has used all the colours in the crayon box for this release.

Branching out from the rootsy rock of their debut, Sound & Color embraces such a diverse bunch of influences that they almost sound like different bands from track to track. These songs jump from soul to grunge to blues and back without batting a lash. That said, lead vocalist Brittany Howard’s amazing and unrestrained soulful voice unifies the tracks into a cohesive whole.

Worth noting, Sound & Color probably has one of the strongest opening five song runs I’ve heard in a long time.

With this album, Alabama Shakes conjures up images of a never-ending road trip into the surreal and it is truly the sound of a band creating and perfecting a genre all of their own.
