Walk Off The Earth – Sexy New Band

(By new, I mean new to me.  They’ve actually been around for awhile.  And by sexy, I mean…. well, you know.)

Have you ever seen FIVE musicians play an amazing song, all playing at the same time on ONE guitar?  I hadn’t, until I saw this video on You Tube by a band called Walk Off The Earth.  (If you’ve already heard of them, you are way more “in the know” than me!)  Their song “Somebody That I Used To Know” is really, really catchy and cool.  As an added bonus, they are all “do-me” good looking and they all have crazy good voices.

Before you check out the video though, here’s a little background on this super cool band.  They are Canadian, their style is Indie, and they have been playing together for about 6 years.  One day this past February, they posted their “Somebody That I Used To Know” video on You Tube.  In true You Tube fashion, the video went viral – to the tune of 80 million views in two months.  Holy SHIT Wow!!  Now, they have a record deal with Columbia.  Next, they’ll be as rich as Peyton Manning.  Well, almost.  (See my Peyton Manning post here)  

When you watch the video, make sure to view it on your full screen – it’s much cooler that way!  Click here to watch the “Somebody That I Used To Know video!

If you thought that was cool, check out the cover they did of Adele’s “Someone Like You”.  Again, I LOVE.  Click here to see the Adele cover!

Looks like we have a new band to look out for….  Goodie!

  1. I love this song! But this version is actually a cover, also. The original is by a guy called Gotye: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8UVNT4wvIGY
    I really like the Walk off the Earth version, though!
