Sound & Color is the follow-up to the band’s Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls, which earned them three GRAMMY nominations, including a nod for Best New Artist.


“Soul-stirring, shape-shifting new sound.”  – NEW YORK TIMES

“This is a weirder, woozier, fiercer and sexier record than their debut in nearly every way.” – ROLLING STONE

“The Shakes’ furious energy can bridge geographical divides and remind you that rock and soul aren’t mutually exclusive” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY


The album’s twelve songs reveal a band honed by years on the road, and drawing from a wide range of influences. The bluesy groove of “Shoegaze” or the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” give way to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini.” The gently swaying, chiming title song opens the album then explodes into the urgent, tightly-coiled funk of “Don’t Wanna Fight.” Long instrumental intros and passages create hazy atmosphere, and then the intensity of Howard’s vocals snaps everything back into riveting focus.
