As an obsessive music fan and “journalist,” I often wonder how some acts literally blow the fuck up, skyrocketing from buzz band status to “Top 10 Of the Year” lists in what feels like a matter of months. Sometimes this kind of trajectory is built on hype and hype alone, but that’s certainly not the case here with Alabama Shakes. Packed with style and soul swagger — not to mention just great songwriting skills — the Alabama indie rock band’s got all the talent to back up each and every one of its praises. Their newest video for “I Ain’t The Same” plays it cool and gets back to the basics: showin’ off the group’s performance chops.

Alabama Shakes’ album Boys & Girls is out now on ATO Records.
