It’s funny how people discover new music. A lot of times, I find out about new artist through commercials and television shows, but how about found out about the group, fun., was pretty random: through the iPhone game, Tap Tap Revenge. I wish I was kidding. Their song, “At Least I’m Not As Sad As I Used to Be” was a free download and I was immediately hooked. I was a fan of the Format before they broke up, so I immediately recognized Nate Ruess’s voice and decided to check out their debut album, which was filled with catchy songs. Fast forward to a year later, you can’t escape fun. (which depending on how you look at it, isn’t a bad thing). All the singles they have released are stand outs and could be considered as anthems for whatever mood you’re in. fun. was the belle of the ball at the Grammys this year, winning a couple of the big awards like Best New Artist and Song of the Year. Whether or not you liked “We are Young”, you have to admit that song was everywhere and that this band isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
