Honestly, I’d never heard of Walk The Moon before putting their name up to vote for the listening club.

I was going through the new releases for that week and listened to it…I’m not sure why. But I liked what I heard, so I put it up for vote and it won by the biggest margin in a while, taking 67% of the votes!
The band itself is from Cincinnati, Ohio and has a great sound that seems electronic-heavy at first, but it’s just the heavy dance grooves that they lock into. There are jangly guitar riffs, rolling drum crescendos, and Nicholas Petricca’s blue-eyed soulful voice that give the songs an overall positive feel. With songs like “Shut Up and Dance,” I don’t think we’re in for too much navel-gazing. But let’s see what y’all think. Let’s Walk The Moon with this Club!
