Walk The Moon – Timebomb

“Look at me! I’m complimenting a track!”

Tom: Or “WALK THE MOON” as they’re apparently loudly styled now, but frankly that can do one. The question is, of course, is this ‘new track in familiar style’ or ‘just a slight change Shut Up And Dance again’?

Tim: That is…horrific artwork, once you start to see the silhouette of the guy as if his head’s at the back, the legs are at the front, and the light’s shining out of his, well. But the sound.

Tom: I’ll be honest, I was expecting to be far more cynical about this. I mean, the guitar sound’s the same, and the structure is roughly Shut Up And Dance, but it’s very clearly a different and new track.

Tim: Yeah, it’s pretty good. It doesn’t have the same immediate appreciation from me that Shut Up Dance, Different Colors or One Foot did, but sure – let’s have it.

Tom: And that lead vocal is great, in a way that I’m not sure earlier singles demonstrated: there are shades of Adam Levine in there, and given that he’s one of the best pop vocalists currently working, that’s a compliment. Look at me! I’m complimenting a track! That’s getting increasingly rare!

  1. “or WALK THE MOON as they’re apparently loudly styled now” and always have been, Tom, see for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JCLY0Rlx6Q from 2014

    in an unrelated note, I am looking at this blog on a LARGE DESKTOP today rather than my usual phone or laptop and it looks VERY DIFFERENT, there’s a whole SIDEBAR and a MYSTERIOUS BLACK BAND across the top and an UNCOMFORTABLE AMOUNT OF UNUSED WHITE SPACE
