F is for Fitz & the Tantrums


I have heard Fitz and the Tantrums on other stations, but not their song “HandClap”. Their neo pop and indie soul stylings shine in the 2016 single. It makes me want to dance like crazy. I am reminded of the fabulous “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars.

 

My phony group? Falling Faster. This five piece group performs post punk revival alternative tunes much like She Wants Revenge. The lyrics are heavily romantic yet fatalistic, their name implying a tendency to fall in love ever more quickly with each failed relationship.

As previously mentioned, all the real tunes air on member supported WNKU out of the University of Northern Kentucky. Anyone interested can find the website here. The web page features the current playlist and live streaming.
