“The exquisite “Lisa Baby” is another highlight — the thick, ropy synth lines drive the dance-machine straight into a sunny, atmospheric chorus that’s as irresistible as anything you’ll hear on the radio today.”
“The band’s use of space is remarkable; unlike a lot of young artists, WtM resists the urge to fill up the tracks and instead lets them breathe, making the songs more alluring and adding a sense of drama and mystery.”
“As solid as the foursome is live, I was still a bit stunned by how advanced, imaginative and proficient Walk the Moon comes across on its enchanting debut album, 'i want! i want!'”
"One of our Best Bands of 2009."
"One of the best young bands I have seen in a long time... various influences, lots of fun"
"Walk the Moon has worldwide appeal."
"Walk the Moon has a penchant for writing catchy hooks backed by strong vocals and instrumentation which is evident in songs like 'Stone Cold Fox' and 'Anna Sun'."
"It is rare that on first listening to a band that you find yourself humming the tunes the rest of the day, but that is what I found after listening to WALK THE MOON. With a great sounding lead vocalist, captivating melodies, well crafted songs with lyrical depth and arrangements reminiscent of the great XTC, they will surely go far!"
““…[has] a modern, artistic edge. On [The Anthem EP], "Stone Cold Fox" is right on. Beginning with strings, it dives into harder, multi-layered Power Pop with hints of Classic Rock, smart melodic changes and crisp vocals."”
"This Cincy-based crew 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, funky guitar lines, skittish, creative rhythms and huge, layered vocals and harmonies. The band's debut EP "The Anthem" earned WALK THE MOON some deserved notice outside of its local fanbase and helped the group earn a slot at a showcase concert in London (they were the only U.S. band chosen to perform). 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!" LP should rocket them even further."
"Walk the Moon’s set contained some of the finest orchestrated indie rock, leaving everyone’s attitude in the stratosphere, delighted by the sounds."
