Band ini sempat mengalami bongkar pasang personel sebelum akhirnya mantap dengan formasi terakhir Nicholas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugman, dan Eli Maiman. Mereka merilis album perdananya I Want! I Want! secara independen November 2010 lalu. Lagu andalan mereka Anna Sun cukup mendapat perhatian di berbagai radio rock alternatif di Amerika saat itu.

Pada Juni 2012 Walk The Moon mendapatkan kontrak rekaman major label pertama mereka dengan RCA Records dan merilis album debut self-titled.

Namun nama Walk The Moon baru benar-benar dikenal oleh khalayak banyak akhir-akhir ini ketika Shut Up And Dance rilis. Lagu ini merupakan lagu andalan dari album ketiga mereka Talking Is Hard. Shut Up And Dance sendiri merupakan lagu indie rock yang sangat ngepop dan sekilas terdengar seperti gabungan antara The Killers dengan One Direction. Mungkin kurang ngerock untuk banyak orang, namun musik yang mereka usung cukup pantas untuk diperhitungkan ditengah gempuran EDM saat ini. Sudah dengar?

Lirik Shut Up And Dance - Walk The Moon

"Oh don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

We were victims of the night,
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and the fading light
Oh, we were bound to get together,
Bound to get together.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
I knew we were bound to be together,
Bound to be together

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

Oh, come on girl!

Deep in her eyes,
I think I see the future.
I realize this is my last chance.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance!"

"Don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me [x2]
