Looking for an indie rock/pop album to listen to that’s fairly enjoyable? Here’s an album for you that you may like! Walk The Moon is a band that started in 2008 and were just trying to be discovered. They went through several band mates before they were able to get musicians that everyone could play with. Once 2010 rolled around, lead vocalist Nicholas Petricca knew that he now had the band mates to finally get something going. After the release of “Anna Sun,” the band started getting more and more popular. Even though they have not released their debut album yet, “Anna Sun” was getting a lot of plays on the radio and that attracted a lot attention to them because it is one of the better songs off of Walk The Moon.
Walk The Moon is an album that if you wanna dance to rock and roll, you can. The way the songs are played allow you to move. The whole album is just filled with catchy choruses and dancing melodies. I myself am a somewhat fan of the album. It took me some time to get used to because they give off a sound that is like a mixture between Panic! At The Disco and The Airborne Toxic Event. You feel like you have heard this band over and over again from band to band, but they keep you hanging on with a pretty good album.
Walk The Moon is exactly what you would find in a debut album for this type of band. It gives you an idea of how everything else they release will sound. Walk The Moon has released an album that does just that. Their sing a long choruses and melodies that make you bop your head are the things that keep it going. The songs really have no point to them. It’s the same thing over and over again.
Overall, if you want a traditional cliché album of an indie rock band, this is something that you might want to give a listen to.
