MIX 94.7 Presents Fitz & the Tantrums Little Hurricane
Since their founding in 2008, Fitz & the Tantrums have defied the odds to become an indisputable phenomenon, a chart-topping, show-stopping, modern pop combo unlike any other, brimming with imagination, energy and genre-smashing scope. With their new Elektra Records debut, More Than Just a Dream, the LA-based group has ramped up their timeless songcraft and soul sonic force. “The only rule in making this record was that there were no rules,” says Fitz. “Nobody was allowed to say, ‘We can’t do that.’ We didn’t limit ourselves.”
While their first record was conceived as homage to 60’s pop soul music, More Than Just A Dream sees Fitz & The Tantrums propelling their sound towards their own distinctive, utterly contemporary vision. Nothing was off the table as the band sought to “create these interesting hybrids of styles and influences that embrace and repel each other all at the same time,” synthesizing everything from soul to pop, from indie to electronic with a dose of hip-hop. From the studio to the stage, Fitz & The Tantrums give everything they have to anything they do, leaving it all on the floor night in and night out. With its artistic audaciousness and pure pop punch, More Than Just A Dream fully confirms Fitz & The Tantrums are here to stay.
