Alabama Shakes

Boys & Girls (ATO)

The album flows so smoothly that you wouldn't imagine it's the first record of the bluesy and soulful Alabama Shakes. Boys & Girls has a youthful liveliness with a vintage twist reminiscent of their R&B and classic rock influences like Otis Redding and Led Zeppelin. "You Ain't Alone" showcases lead singer Brittany Howard's deep, mature voice as she opens softly with warmth and tenderness and ends belting out reassuring words---sounding like she's physically shaking because she's singing with that much power and might. "Rise to the Sun" is another favourite with a delicious verse and a rhythm based chorus.
