Alabama Shakes Perform “Don’t Wanna Fight”

Alabama Shakes first came to prominence in 2013 when their first album, Boys & Girls received Grammy nominations for Best New Artists, Best Rock Performance, and Best Recording Package.  Their eclectic mix of soul, blues, and rock made them fan favorites at major music festivals.

The band just released their latest album, Sound & Color.

“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says Brittany Howard, lead singer and guitarist of Alabama Shakes. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us, explore all the things we wanted to on our first album. This record is full of genre-bending songs—it’s even harder now when people ask, ‘What kind of band are you?’ I have no clue.”

In this video, Alabama Shakes performs, “Don’t Wanna Fight,” an urgent, tightly-coiled song that exudes funk.
