Walk off the Earth are a fantastic indie band from Ontario – they call themselves an an “unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomena” which is seriously just what they are.
Walk off the Earth have actually been going for 6 years now, regularly making videos for youtube mostly of cover music – they have had a loyal following from the start but popularity really hit when they posted a cover this year of Somebody that I used to know” originally by Gotye. Which you may now know as 5 people playing one guitar – its not only better than the original but it is hilarious and so so clever! Today Somebody I used to know has 132,838,890 views. Not only do the band make superb music, they are fantastic fun and they have an amazing chemistry! Amongst their videos on youtube are many interviews, take out videos and crazy stuff like – “crowd surfing in Japan” which was from this weeks tour – I love these as you feel like you can really get to know the band.
