“Walk The Moon” is an odd name for a band, but then, so is “The Grateful Dead” and “The Beatles”…
“One Foot,” by said group, Walk The Moon, is already Top 10 on the Alternative music chart, and is on its way to a full-fledged cross over smash in early 2018, as both Top 40 and Adult Top 40 have already jumped on board.
It’s got a “message” but it’s the beat we are into, the kind of upbeat rhythm that gets an audience on their feet, similar to Fatboy Slim’s alternative dance track “Praise You” (1999). Even though these two songs have far different messages, both exude exuberance and abandon.
Walk the Moon’s lead singer, Nicholas Petricca, explains “‘One Foot’ really sums up the theme of the whole record: Staring out into the unknown, being faced with uncertainty and what could be certain failure, but deciding to move forward and take that first step anyway.”
Walk the Moon bio: rock foursome from Cincinnati. Their “Shut Up and Dance” was one of the most played songs of 2015–a mega, multi-format hit that still gets significant, widespread radio airplay.
