What does Esquire’s 2011 pick for “song of the summer” do once the weather turns cold? If you’re Cincinnati’s Walk The Moon, you just keep unleashing the impossibly bright, stomping sing-along “Anna Sun”—which now has a great tracking-shot video—and hope it leads people to your debut album, I Want! I Want!, because there’s much more in store there. Accessible art-pop nuggets like “Quesadilla” and “Blue Dress” aren’t exactly built to rattle any cages (a la Tune-Yards), but they also boast a little more heft and sturdier writing than tunes from fellow barbecue-soundtrack hopefuls Foster The People. Walk The Moon recently signed to a major label, RCA, a move that will hopefully spread the band’s goofball charm to a larger audience rather than dulling it down.
