Alabama Shakes appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, and the band’s rendition of Sound & Color closer “Over My Head” was unsurprisingly awesome.

The subdued yet passionate gospel-tinged tune made quite a showcase for Brittany Howard, the band’s powerhouse vocalist. Backing her with a three-person chorus seems excessive, as the singer is already a one-woman choir whenever she touches a microphone. From her soaring vocals to her smooth two-step, Howard crushes this performance. Good luck taking your eyes off her.

Alabama Shakes are currently in the midst of their massive Sound & Color tour, which is set to take them all over North America and Europe. Check out their live dates below and the Tonight Show clip above.
