Walk The Moon
Jul 30, 2012
The latest release from Walk the Moon "Anna Sun," is a catchy track by the Ohio art-rock band and it is technically the first single from the paisley revival group's self-titled, major-label debut album, released June 19th on RCA Records. The song was penned by lead singer/keyboardist Nicholas Petricca in 2009 and has actually been the act's flagship single for nearly two years.
The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun" on WCRD, WFPK, WKNH, and WTMD. In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They recorded at Doppler Studios starting in July 2011 with producer/mixer/songwriter Ben Allen. The new album will be released under RCA Records. SPIN Magazine has described them as a "poppy, art-rock quartet". They were also deemed a Nylon Magazine Band Crush for their "swirly pop beats, infectious guitar riffs, and loud, sing-a-long choruses."
"Anna Sun" was added to the video rotation of American Eagle Outfitters stores in May 2011. It was featured on the hit TV show Vampire Diaries in the first episode of season three. It was also the free single of the week on iTunes for the week of May 15th. It has also been named song of the summer by MTV and Seventeen Mag as well as one of the top songs of the year by Amazon. It has been officially remixed by Fool's Gold and by Trouble Productions. It also rose to the #1 spot on Alt. Nation on Sirius XM Radio. Along with the success of "Anna Sun", Alt. Nation has named them a band you need to know for the Summer of 2012.
