It is impossible to have a bad time while seeing Fitz & The Tantrums. With infectious hooks and ridiculous energy, it’s impossible to not sing and dance along. Their song, “Handclap” garnered over one million streams on Spotify its first week out.
Fitz & The Tantrums strive to deliver a diverse musical palette of influences fused with hip-hop, trap music, reggae, and world music. “From the first second, we just connected,” Fitz says of Scaggs. “Our voices naturally blended together. And then, because so much of what we write about is the dynamic between a man and a woman, we started to sing toward each other onstage. And that energy just grew. Then we’d sing out to the audience and encourage them to not just be passive listeners, but to be participants, an actual rhythmical part of the music. And that became a huge part of our identity. Our live show became our calling card everywhere we went.” And with their third full-length release, Fitz and the Tantrums have made an album that captures that jubilant, enraptured spirit. “We wanted to give people permission to lose control,” Fitz says. “We want the album to be a call to arms and for people to come to the church of the song.”
