Spirited and quirky Cincinnati, Ohio-based indie rockers Walk the Moon formed in the late 2000s around the talents of Nicholas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman. After independently releasing their 2010 debut album, I Want! I Want!, the band signed on with Brooklyn, New York-based boutique management company Mick Management and began work on its follow-up LP with producer/mixer/songwriter Ben Allen at Atlanta, Georgia's Doppler Studios. The resulting eponymous sophomore outing arrived in 2012 on RCA Records. The following year saw the release of the Tightrope EP, and in 2014 the band issued its third long-player (and major-label debut), Talking Is Hard via RCA.
