Anna Sun Music Video LEAD

Cincinnati-based quartet Walk the Moon’s “Anna Sun” single is currently residing in a very special place for me, the short timeframe between when I first hear an amazing song on the radio and the moment when that song becomes ridiculously overplayed (see: Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know). The latter event doesn’t diminish the song’s awesomeness in the slightest (again, see: Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”); it just makes me wish those controlling radio playlists (DJs? hahahahaha) would understand that people will stay on their stations LONGER just to hear that one single, so no need to play it every 45 minutes. OK, rant over. Back to Walk the Moon…

I love everything about the song “Anna Sun,” and after finally checking out the track’s official video, I love everything about Walk the Moon, in general, and their frontman, Nicholas Petricca, in particular. Can we just take a moment to recognize the swoon-worthiness of his little dance at 2:06? Freaking adorable! The group’s self-titled debut album was released last week and has been racking up the plays on my Spotify account. I definitely recommend “Shiver Shiver” (reminds me of Minus the Bear’s newer tracks) and “I Can Lift A Car” (a little slower in tempo but no less catchy), and of course, you should check out the video for “Anna Sun” yourself below:
