Music Monday: Walk The Moon
My daughter shares music with me often. And often, she finds some great new bands for me to listen to. Like the self-titled effort by Walk The Moon, which I quickly embraced after the first few listens.
- “Lisa Baby”
- “Next In Line”
- “Anna Sun”
- “Shiver Shiver”
- “I Can Lift A Car”
Not sure what it was about this style of music that grabbed me right away. They have a strong and similar sound to Panic! At The Disco on many of the tracks. Unlike Panic!, whose younger sound took a bit to grow on me. This band comes across more mature in their approach in writing pop songs, giving that bit of edge that grabs the slightly older fans [and obviously this somewhat older music fan]. It might be songs like “Lisa Baby” and “Anna Sun” that had the hooks and movements that did it. But for sure, the infectious “Next In Line” had more of a solid feel, throwing some emo-like guitar riffs to complete the track.
If you need another album of new sounds with a bit of difference than the norm, check out Walk The Moon. It’s found it’s place on my playlist for a while.
Pretty sure that’s a Cincinnati band, too. Maybe not. Not a big fan. The Anna Sun song is okay but the repetition makes me CRAZY.
