In 2010, the band self-released its first studio album, I want! I want!, The lead single from the LP "Anna Sun" became a huge hit. It conquered the world charts. The song reached the 18th spot on US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and climbed to high positions on Belgian and British charts. The single was featured in the movie Vampire Diaries.
The band started giving live concerts. In order to make an impression, they began painting their faces.
The success of "Anna Sun" allowed the group to sign a contract with RCA Records. In 2012, Walk The Moon recorded its second EP Anna Sun. In a few days, the single with the same name was released under RCA Records.
