The Los Angeles Times called “HandClap” a contender for “2016’s Song of the Summer” in thisfeature, which takes a look at the songwriting process behind the track and radio’s ecstatic response to it. “Fitz & The Tantrums deliver hook upon hook on catchy new single ‘HandClap,'” said Idolatorand Harper’s Bazaar hailed the track as a “cheeky dance floor seduction ballad.”
USA Today put “Roll Up,” another album track, on its list of the “10 best songs of the week,” noting how it’s “infectious, pop-y, and hard not to bop around to when it floats in your ears.” The Boston Globe observed, “the album proves emphatically that Fitz can still craft a catchy chorus.”
Fitz and The Tantrumsis the follow-up to More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date. The 2013 album contained the Gold-certified singles “The Walker” and “Out Of My League.“ Both tracks topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart – a feat accomplished by only three other artists in the chart’s 25-year history.
