We’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the guys in Walk the Moon these last few weeks leading up to and after the release of their new self-titled album. On release day, they sent over a great playlist of their favorite songs and we caught up with them at Summerfest 2012. They return from overseas this weekend and will be making more stops in the US through the end of August. Check out their tour dates here and read the interview below.
SEN: About a year and a half ago, you all were unsigned, making huge waves on your own and it paid off. What do you suggest for other D.I.Y. artists that you’ve learned since?
Nick: Go to school! [laughs] No, keep D.I.Y.-ing. It’s a lot about perseverance. It’s rare that you’ll just be seen by the right guy in the right bar. You just kind of have to keep making ripples and the bigger the ripple the better. Just keep building your fan base and keep trying to come up with creative ways to get your name out there. For us it was the “Anna Sun” video, more or less, that got people’s attention and was sort of the quickest way to find out who we are and what we’re about.
Kevin: I also think online has so much to do with it because bands can take advantage of so many outlets to get their name out there. Do as much as you can, stay as creative as possible and keep putting content into the world, because the more people see it, the more people share it and that’s what happened to us. It just happened pop up on the right blogs.
Eli: Just don’t be shy. Especially with the internet, there’s no reason to be shy. You can get out there and interact with people who dig what you do and they’ll dig you even more.

Walk the Moon have been on an out-of-this-world journey to buzzband status, officially and firmly placing the WTM flag on our planet with their brand new, self-titled album out TODAY! Their song, “Anna Sun,” is a certifiable summer smash, grabbing ears with hooks in the vein of Foster the People and vocals like The Killers. This young band has been touring relentlessly since February, travelling in tow with Young the Giant, Grouplove and Kaiser Chiefs, as well as headlining many of them on their own. They continue their mission through October, playing the US, several festival dates and overseas with Fun.
That’s a lot of time to spend travelling, which allows for a lot of time to listen to some great new music. The band took time during their adventures to send us a playlist of their current favorite songs, an eclectic mix from Iron Maiden to Bon Iver to Fitz and the Tantrums. Click the links below to hear what they chose and be sure to add these tracks and Walk the Moon’s new album to your Music Unlimited service library!
