Spirited, quirky Cincinnati, Ohio-based indie-rockers Walk The Moon know how to get the party started. The music brims with sparkling synth-heavy pop hooks, chanted melodies, sunny harmonies, and agile polyrhythmic grooves — a sound influenced by the New Wave stylings of their favorite artists Talking Heads, David Bowie, and The Police. “We started describing it as an ‘indie-pop fiesta’ and that kind of stuck,” says singer, songwriter, and keyboardist Nicholas Petricca. The band’s live shows are jubilant, pogo-friendly celebrations of life and being alive.
