For this week’s Musical Discovery, I found this track whilst watching Hank Green’s latest video for the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel (which, by the way, is a great channel to check out). During the video, I came across Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon.
Immediately, with the track beginning with a vibrant guitar riff typical of summer anthems, the song descends into the feel-good pop associated with the fun and excitement of summer.
In terms of verses and choruses, the chorus contains catchy and memorable lyrics, whilst the verses seem somewhat different compared to the fast pace of the chorus. Despite the difference in style, it still has the happy, colourful vibes that makes the song a feel-good track.
Also, with the song increasing in popularity, it may be a contender for the summer track of 2015.
What do you think of this track? Could it be this year’s summer anthem? Comment below!
