Los Angeles based Fitz and the Tantrums recently released their third studio album last summer. After forming in 2008, the indie pop group grew in popularity over the years with their jazzy, Motown, and often grab bag influenced hits like “Moneygrabber”, “The Walker”, and “Out of My League”. Their latest self titled album, Fitz and the Tantrums, embraced a far truer pop sound than any of their prior work. It’s exciting to see this evolution for a band like Fitz and the Tantrums who have become a staple among indie and alternative music fans.
In a recent article with Entertainment Weekly, lead vocalists Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs explained the transition to a more pure pop sound as, “With every record, we’ve always tried to evolve,” said Fitz, “and I think we felt like with this third album, we’d really come into our own. It’s almost like we’re planting a stake in the ground. We’re here. This is us: Fitz and the Tantrums.”
They just released a fun new video accompanying their second single off of their newest album, “Roll Up”. The animated cartoon depicts Fitz as cupid and Scaggs as a lonely vampire. And with just a week before Halloween, this couldn’t be more perfect timing for the release of this video!
