Alabama Shakes – Don’t Wanna Fight


Much has, and will continue to be written about those Shakes from Alabama. Brittany Howard and her Krewe de Soul immediately lit up our ears and the charts when they first hit the scene with “Hold On” and their latest single, “Don’t Wanna Fight,” only reaffirms what we already knew: they are really frickin’ good.

“Don’t Wanna Fight” is a funkier version of their distinctive southern sound, but no less fun. Howard’s voice, combined with surprising arrangements and an infusion of James Brown makes you curious where their new album Sound & Color is going to go. I’ll tell you one thing: no matter where that is, I’m going to be there with bells and whistles on. Click play above and get ready to move.
