Music News: Fitz and the Tantrums Release New Single “Out of My League” and Announce Second Album

542652_10151325272152739_992103659_nThe Los Angeles based indie/soul pop outfit Fitz and the Tantrums is comprised of six people and a wide variety of instruments—without a guitar in sight. Inspired by major musical movements of the past, the band provides a fresh, different sound in today’s music scene. Their catchy new single, “Out of My League,” has a very 80’s feel to it, a small departure from the 60’s Motown-infused tracks from their debut album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces.

Listen to it here:

Along with releasing the single, Fitz and the Tantrums announced that their sophomore album, More Than Just a Dream, will be released on May 7, 2013. A pre=order on iTunes gives you the single for free!

Bri is a 25-year-old born and raised in the swamps of Jersey. Just kidding, she lives at least twenty minutes from those swamps. She’s a publishing professional that moonlights as a writer. She enjoys going to concerts (anything from Rooney to Springsteen to NKOTBSB), roadtripping, and complaining that she truly belongs in the 1950’s, the 1920′s, or the 1980′s depending on her mood. She definitely owns more books than she should and reads every chance she gets. If you stop hearing from her, it’s because the book piles have fallen over and smothered her to death in the night.

  • They definitely have a unique sound. Kind of reminds me of U2 a little bit. There sound is kind of rock and electronic at the same time. It's certainly a sound that will be popular among the teens and young adults.

    I cannot wait for their next album!
