Do you wanna jam out? Do you wanna get caught dancing and singing along to music on your way to work? Brighten your day with Fitz and the Tantrums, a band that represents a mix between Young the Giant, Allen Stone, and Walk the Moon. They know how to get a catchy song stuck in your head. And that’s right. They are NOT main stream. Isn’t it hard to find catchy music that isn’t radio friendly? I think so, and I’m glad that I stumbled across these guys. I promise you that you’ll be singing the song MoneyGrabber for a while, without this annoying thought that might have gotten caught in the back of your mind in the past: “this song is so mainstream radio..”
What makes this song so good? The choice of instrumentation. Piano riffs start the song off with a groovy kind of feel, while background vocals introduce the kicking chorus. Oh yeah! There’s brass too! Personally, I love the ways some artists use brass instruments to give their music different perceptions. On top of all this, those drums really push the emotion of the song as the snare drum hits quarter notes in the chorus. The song just drives your musical tastes to places they might have never been before. Seriously. This song makes you wanna get up and dance! Or at least shake your hips a little.
Have I not convinced you yet? If not, I personally want to guarantee a smile on your face and a kick in your step if you listen to this song, let alone the band. Give it a chance! And if you don’t like it, let me know why. If I HAVE convinced you, I’m not sure why you’re still reading this. Go listen! And then come on back and let me know what you think.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
