Who: Walk The Moon
From: Cincinnati, OH
For fans of: The Killers, The Bravery, Animal Collective, David Bowie, Talking Heads
If you’re into a somewhat whimsical and artsy take on everything great that is about pop/rock like hypnotic guitar riffs, loud and poppy choral lines and infectious pop beats, then Cincy natives Walk The Moon will more than fit that bill…plus some. The group has been on a fast trajectory to the top, getting their music on the hit TV show The Vampire Diaries, placement on the video playlists of clothing store American Eagle Outfitters and ultimately their recent entry to the major label world with RCA Records, who released their self-titled new album (and major label debut) Walk the Moon earlier this year. The album has spawned the hit “Anna Sun,” whose accompanying music video has seen over 2 million views on Vevo/YouTube. This is why this uber-talented pop/rock quartet from the Skyline City has earned the right to land right in…The Spotlight.
