Viral Buzz: Walk off the Earth

Before people start accusing me for hopping on the Walk off the Earth viral video bandwagon, I’d like to bring out the inner hipster and say this: I liked them before they were cool!

This homegrown talented band from Burlington Ontario spread across the internet like wildfire after doing a ‘5 person 1 guitar’ cover of the already recently spiked (it was barely heard 6 months ago) in popularity song  ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ by New Zealand songwriter Gotye.  Two weeks ago or so they only had a few hundred likes on their facebook page. If you look now you’ll see that number has, well, multiplied by at least 150.

Check them out and don’t forget to check out their originals! Support your local artists, you never know what you’ll find.
