Laura’s Pick for This Week’s “Music You Need to Listen To” [VIDEO]
One of the things I love about my job the most is listening to music. It’s kind of a given in my line of work. Another thing I love, is finding new music that not many people have discovered yet, and being able to share my finds with you. Then when everyone loves the band or the song, I get to gloat like a hipster. Then it’s not cool to like them anymore. Ok, not really. But I’ve found a song that I can’t stop playing, and I think it’s going to be BIG. So I’m going to share it will all 5 of you that is actually still reading this. And if the song never gets any airtime on any radio station, this whole paragraph was never written. It’s just a figment of your imagination.
The band is Walk Off the Earth. They’re a Canadian indie band that has gained success around the world by making low-budget music videos of covers and originals. Thank you, Youtube. The band built its fan base independently with no help from record labels, booking agents, or management. Their first full length album will be released next week!
The song I’m currently in love with is “Red Hands.” The video is great too.
And this is the awesome video (with over 147 MILLION VIEWS) that lead me to love this band. And another cool fact, this video was the second most watched Youtube video of 2012–just after Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
Check out their Youtube channel and all the great covers to fall in love with Walk Off the Earth like I did! Or not.
