Cincinnati indie rockers Walk the Moon have been on the scene for nearly half a decade, but it wasn't until last year that they released their major label debut after years of self-released music, including a compilation, an albums and EPs. Their single "Anna Sun" made waves in indie circles and garnered a great reaction when we spun it on The Current airwaves.

This year, they're back with another single off of the debut, "Tightrope," and an accompanying EP. They're also set to embark on a tour of the UK and Europe this spring. Even in the midst of this hectic schedule, the quartet was able to make time to swing by The Current studios to chat with The Current's Morning Show and take over our airwaves with some of their favorite music past and present for another Theft of the Dial session — and to grace us with a lovely acoustic performance of "Tightrope"!

Check out the video of their performance, and listen to their picks.
