CD Review: Walk Off The Earth Find Success With "R.E.V.O." Album

From Canada comes the indie pop/rock band Walk Off The Earth with their Columbia Records debut "R.E.V.O." Walk Off The Earth has found success by making low budget videos showcasing the band covering popular hits, including "Somebody That I Used To Know," which is included on this new album. This is the band's third studio album and the first to crack the Billboard Album charts, debuting at #90.
 
The album kicks off with the title-song "R.E.V.O." as you instantly feel the energy this band puts into their performances and how much fun their music is. The album's latest single, "Red Hands" has the perfect mainstream radio sound, adding elements of folk, rock and dance to create an infectious song. Walk Off The Earth dive into their folk roots with "Gang of Rhythm" and quicken the pace with "Speeches" as the music mirrors that of Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers. Their cover of Goyte's "Somebody That I Used To Know" is just amazing as they create their own version of this popular song without taking away the feel of the original. The album finishes up with this year's hot weather anthem, "Summer Vibe," then they rock out to "Money Tree," before closing with the gentle acoustics of "No Ulterior Motives."
 
Walk Off The Earth just wrapped up their spring tour, but still have a couple dates scheduled for two music festivals this summer in Canada. To find out more about this rising band, please visit walkofftheearth.com.
