Daily Prompt: We all have our semi-secret, less-known personal favorites — a great B-side, an early work by an artist that later became famous, an obscure (but delicious) family recipe. Share one of your unsung heroes with us — how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar?
A while ago my sister introduced me to a band called Walk the Moon.

But I think the final reason I like their music so much is because no-one else knows them. In a way, I feel like only my sister and I listen to them. And there’s no pressure to buy all their merch or learn everything there is to know about every member. It’s just good music.
