More Than Just a Dream


By Annie Smith, Staff Writer

It’s more than just music, it’s Fitz and the Tantrums. The band released their new album “More Than Just a Dream” on May 7, and it’s anything but disappointing. Filled with steady drum beats and sporadic “fitz” of tambourine clashes, each song offers some fun for its listener’s ears.

The most popular with the radio is the hit single “Out of My League”, a catchy tune with some beats reminiscent of the 80’s and cooing background singers that are sure to leave you humming for the rest of the day. If you don’t like humming, feel free to whistle along to the tune of “The Walker.” Just as catchy and energetic as the rest of the album’s songs, “The Walker” starts with some upbeat whistling and tells the tale of roaming a city by foot while having the world at your feet.

Overall, the album offers some fun dancing tunes and great vocals from co-singers, Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs.  So whether you need a good musical boost or are home alone and feel the urge to dance spastically, Fitz and the Tantrums’ new release is available now to fulfill your indie-pop-loving musical needs.
