Caught on Tape: Fitz & the Tantrums' Searing 'Sweet Dreams' Eurythmics Cover
If you're looking for your morning cup of holy hot damn, well, here it is.
Last week, L.A.'s supreme soulsters Fitz and the Tantrums concluded a month-long Thursday-night residency at Spaceland, but this isn't the sort of crew to go out quietly.
Just when when you thought it was safe to retire your rug-cutters, a YouTuber has leaked the troupe's searing live rendition of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams."
Complete with syncopated horn blasts, Fitz and the stunning Noelle Scaggs trading vocals, and that juicy amen break on the drums, this'd be a welcome regular in the Tantrums' repertoire.
For those who can't wait to hear this cover at the band's July 15 stint at the Hammer Museum, we've got a treat for you.
Did someone say video? So sweet indeed.
