Shut Up and Dance | #MusicMonday

Its Mondayyy, which means a new Music Monday song choice! I once again apologies for the lack of music mondays but they will (hopefully) pick up now that I have less homework :D
This weeks tune is actually inspired if not chosen by one of my friends who introduced me to another song from this amazing band!

'Shut Up and Dance' - Walk the Moon

Like I said above, a friend of mine actually listed some of their current favourite songs and one of them was Anna Sun by Walk the Moon. So as I went to check out their youtube channel their latest release, Shut Up and Dance, starting playing and I instantly started to like this band!

Walk the Moon is an indie rock band who originate in Ohio in 2008. Within the first two years several member changes happened before coming together with current members; Nicholas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman and Eli Maiman. The band released their debut album, i want! i want!, independently in November 2010. Later in February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management and RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon, in June 2012.

The band have played at the Sasquatch Music Festival, Firefly Music Festival and Summerfest Music Festival in the past and have also played at the iTunes Festival in London in 2012 and were the support act for Fun on their European tour. Their single Quesadilla was added to the official FIFA 13 soundtrack and their second single, Tightrope, was used in the commercial for the HP Envy 4 Ultrabook laptop.
Most recently, Walk the Moon released the single, Shut Up and Dance, on the 9th of September 2014 ahead of their new album officially titled - Talking is Hard - which will release on the 2nd of December 2014!
Walk the Moon are a great band and I am very happy to have been introduced to them and get to share their talent with you all. I hope that you will go and check this band out if you haven't done so already and look out for a new Music Monday very soon...well...in seven days ;)
