Walk The Moon caught ’Call Me Maybe’ fever.
Our favorite thing about summer so far (besides air conditioning)? Walk The Moon as the MTV POSTED artist for July! All month long we’re following the band in exclusive videos and interviews at POSTED.MTV.com. So slap on your face paint guys, ’cause it’s time to learn even more about the “Anna Sun” artists.
This may be surprising, but they don’t just listen to their own self-titled album on repeat (like we do). In fact, they are into major pop summer jams from the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen! Stars: They’re just like us!

While the “Next In Line” singers are totally our music idols (which other band supports drawing on yourself?), the guys dish on some newfound musical inspirations of their own — like summer sensation Carly Rae Jepsen. The band’s frontman, Nicholas Petricca, explains that they didn’t know who the “Call Me Maybe” singer really was until their tour manager introduced the popular song. We’re guessing they’ve been SUPER busy while on tour with fun. not to have caught the gazillion parodies of the hit.
The guys continue to mention other artists they dig, like Mother Mother and Robyn (both also on our fave list), but we just can’t stop imagining a killer Carly Rae and Walk The Moon mashup — “Call Me Anna” anyone? Just a thought.
