Fitz and the Tantrums yearn for the days of ‘boomboxes and CDs’ on ‘OCD’

Do you remember back in the day when you had to lug huge cases of CDs with you anywhere you went because mp3 players were some “Star Trek”-level devices?

Well, Fitz and the Tantrums are definitely reminiscing about those days on their latest single.

On Friday (Oct. 4), the Los Angeles-founded band unleashed the lyric video for “OCD.” The lyrics are a blast from the past as it makes reference to boomboxes, CDs, and Case Logic (aka one of the biggest makers of CD cases).

Because the lyrics weren’t enough to give you some serious “Flashback Fridays” vibes, the lyric video itself may do the trick. The clip looks like it was shot through a camcorder while the footage is a blend of subdued neon colors that scream “THE 80s!”

“This one’s for everyone who used to have cases and cases of CDs from their favorite bands,” the band tweeted earlier in the day.

“OCD” is featured on Fitz and the Tantrums’ recently released studio album All the Feels. The sextet’s fourth studio effort was released in September through Elektra Records. Before its early fall debut, several singles were released including “I Just Wanna Shine,” “All the Feels,” “I Need Help!,” “Don’t Ever Let Em,” and “123456.”

All the Feels is the long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Fitz and the Tantrums.

In support of the recently released album, the sixsome will embark on the All the Feels Winter 2020 headlining tour.

The cross-country trek begins Feb. 7 at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma, and concludes a month or so later on March 13 at the Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California.

Electro-pop group TWIN XL will join Fitz and the Tantrums for the full excursion.
