STAY SHOTGUN UNTIL THE DAY I DIE.

Walk the Moon, quite possibly the best new band in America, step out into the spotlight this week with the Anna Sun EP, going the Foster route and coming out swinging with three of their biggest tracks ahead of their debut album proper this spring. The anthemic title track already won over the hearts and minds of just about anyone who heard it last year, but it's "Next In Line" here that's dialing us up and making advance reservations for a spot at the top of our Singles of 2012 list.

Put the key in the ignition and the track revs to life with a thumping backbeat and brassy synths, the anticipation palpable as frontman Nicholas Petricca's vocals set an urgent tone and anxious guitars shred through the leather upholstery. As you sit shotgun sweating bullets in the summer solstice, there's nothing to prepare you for THAT chorus, a Killers-sized behemoth that's sure to be one of the most infectious of the year. Streaming only tracks aren't usually our speed here at Neon Gold, but we can make an exception for one of the biggest songs we've heard in recent memory. Get involved with the exclusive premier of your new favorite song below, and be sure to cop the Anna Sun EP when it drops worldwide tomorrow.

I remember when they came to Butler University! I'm a member of MEISA, and one of our execs, Katie Carlson, was their manager for a while!
