The Walkmen are an indie rock band from New York City. The group is comprised of Hamilton Leithauser (vocals, guitar), Paul Maroon (guitar, piano), Walter Martin (organ), Peter Bauer (bass) and Matt Barrick (drums). Four of the five band members attended St. Albans high school in Washington D.C. The 2002 debut album Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone was well received by critics for its experimental approach and progressive sound. The track "We've Been Had" from Everyone Who Pretended was used on a television commercial for the Saturn Ion. The follow up album Bows & Arrows, was released in 2004 and was listed by many critics as one of the year's best albums while embracing a less whimsical, experimental sound than the previous album. Several songs have been featured on the Fox television program The O.C., including "What's in It for Me?", "The Rat" and "Little House of Savages".
