After blowing up the Internet with their cover of Gotye and Kimbra's "Somebody That I Used to Know," Walk Off the Earth are ready to deliver their debut EP, R.E.V.O.. The band's original work mirrors their cleverly arranged covers: opener "Red Hands" explodes with xylophone, walls of drums and anthemic chants, while "Speeches" rambles and shakes with an aggressive acoustic guitar that leads a delicate horn section. Closer "Summer Vibe" changes pace, cruising with breezy, sandy melodies, harmonica licks, carefree lyrics and more spirited group chants

R.E.V.O. will be released October 30th.

Listen to R.E.V.O.:

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
