Fitz & the Tantrums

Led by songwriter Michael Fitzpatrick, Fitz & the Tantrums brew up a retro sound inspired by Motown and Stax Records. Fitzpatrick initially formed the Tantrums as a neo-soul solo project; having purchased an old church organ, he found that it helped inspire his songwriting. While recording a solo EP, he recruited an old college friend, James King, to add horn arrangements to the material. The lineup grew from there, with the Tantrums eventually becoming a co-ed septet. Songs for a Break Up, Vol. 1 marked the group's first release in 2009, and Fitz & the Tantrums headed to South by Southwest the following year, stirring up some industry buzz in the process. In 2010, the band returned with its first full-length effort, Pickin' Up the Pieces, featuring the single "MoneyGrabber." In 2013, Fitz & the Tantrums delivered their second studio album, the Tony Hoffer-produced More Than Just a Dream. The album's lead single, "Out of My League," reached number one on Billboard's Alternative chart. A new single, "Handclap," arrived in March 2016 in advance of the band's third, self-titled LP. ~ Andrew Leahey
