Today’s band is a five piece band titled Walla. Based in L.A., Walla is now pumping out some great synth-pop hits. Recently, the band hit number one on the Hype Machine with their song Nature. Unfortunately, their fame may be short-lived. According to sources, each band member belongs to several different countries– Italy, Indonesia, Brazil, Korea, and Mexico/ El Salvador. Three of the members are on U.S. student scholarships that are slowly creeping towards their expiration dates. 😦
Legal issues aside, this band is pretty good. Recently they dropped their self- released EP, Nature (also of the same title as their song). What’s better is that behind all the addictive synths and beats, lies a surprisingly deep message, we’re all just trying to figure things out. It’s a fun summer song that is catchy and fun to listen to. A sweet reminder that sometimes it is better just to live in the moment rather than getting caught up in the unpredictable future.
