Cincinnati Indie-Pop quartet WALK THE MOON releases their debut album entitled i want! i want! on CD, iTunes, walkthemoon.bandcamp.com, and limited edition cassette tapes on November 16th, 2010.
Check out the SNEAK PEEK on YouTube of the music video "Anna Sun", which will be premiered at the record release party @ the Mockbee in Cincinnati on Nov. 13th (the Mockbee, historic factory-turned-venue with barrel-vault ceilings and secret passageways, was also the location of the music video shoot, which involved some 70 volunteers and several local organizations).
"...formed in college over a mutual love of Talking Heads and twisted, inventive Pop. The resulting band reflects those two elements beautifully - WALK THE MOON makes fascinating, danceable Art Pop laced with vintage synth riffs... creative rhythms. ...And the band's captivating live show has grown its fanbase thanks to regular tour dates in NYC and beyond. This fall's i want i want EP should rocket them even further."
-CityBeat Cincinnati, Sept 2010
"The young band was a bundle of energy and crowd responded in kind. And you have to respect a group unafraid to wear its influences like a badge of honor... as if to say, 'Yes, we do love Talking Heads, what are you going to do about it?'"
-Mike Breen, CityBeat, review of Midpoint Music Festival 2010
"One of the best young bands I have seen in a long time... various influences, lots of fun..."
-Denise, GNYCTV/Highline Ballroom, New York City, July 2010
"Walk the Moon’s set contained some of the finest orchestrated indie rock, leaving everyone’s attitude in the stratosphere, delighted by the sounds."
-Sean Peters, The News Record, Cincinnati, May 2010
WTM will be travelling NE to Boston and NYC, SE to the Carolinas, West to St. Louis, and many places in between throughout Winter 2010-2011. Always find updated Tour dates on myspace.com/walkthemoonband.
