Walk The Moon? Anyone? Their song, Anna Sun, kinda makes me want to jump up and down.
This 4 dude band from Cincinnati reminds me a lot of The Killers or OK GO (wow, remember them?) with their pop mainstream sound while still maintaining some sort of indie cred. OK - kinda maintaining indie cred? Maybe?
The best way I've heard them described is as follows...
"If you like your indie pop to be positive, catchy, energetic and astonishingly consistent then you have to buy this album. It’s so well aimed at your happy button that it has the power to bring sunshine into the darkest corners of life. So to conclude, here’s the way that this should be pitched – stop wallowing, stop asking why, stop trying so hard and switch off for half an hour by getting into this lot. There. Sometimes the answers are found in the simplicity of it all." - therecommender.net
It's nice to have found a silly/happy band on this oppressively hot, and only getting hotter, morning! They have a couple of other great songs if you want to preview their recently released album here - http://walkthemoon.bandcamp.com/ - I promise there's something everyone will enjoy.

I'm also fairly devestated to announce that I just found out they are playing the Black Cat in DC this Monday with GroupLove and it's sold out. Pout.
