Alabama Shakes

Last seen on these shores in 2013, when they made their Japan debut at Liquidroom, neo-soul quartet Alabama Shakes return for more smokey old-time rock ’n’ soul. While their sophomore album, 2015's Sound & Color, mixed up authentic and respectful R&B with bluesy arrangements that recall the Black Keys, lead singer Brittany Howard is a far more commanding presence than Keys' frontman Dan Auerbach, passionately delivering heartfelt lyrics alongside ripping guitar solos. It might seem impossible, but Alabama Shakes have the chops that can make a cavernous venue like Studio Coast feel intimate.
