Sounds | Movements, Barbed Wire Body


In 2020 kwam het album No Good Left To Give van Movements uit. Helaas kon de band door de wereldwijde pandemie niet met dit album touren. De perfecte opportuniteit om aan nog meer nieuwe muziek te werken. Zo kwamen ze eind vorige week op de proppen met Barbed Wire Body. Een energieke song die een nieuw tijdperk voor Movements moet inluiden!


Zanger Patrick Miranda zegt het volgende over hun nieuwste song:“Barbed Wire Body is a departure from the ‘typical’ MOVEMENTS song. We usually have more ebbs and flows in the dynamics of our songs. However, with this song, we really just aimed for a high energy, loud, in-your-face track that has little regard for our usual sound. We wanted to write an upbeat track with tons of energy that just felt fun and exciting. I think this song is the first of a new era of songwriting for us.”

Reflecting personal changes from a whirlwind five years, Movements realize the full scope of their storytelling, musicianship, and vision on their second full-length album, No Good Left To Give [Fearless Records]. Not only does the music address the emotional push-and-pull of relationships, but it also explores loss, love, mental health, and even intimacy through a prism of newfound clarity soundtracked by post-punk grit, alternative expanse, heartfelt spoken word, expansive rock, and subtle pop ambition. The Southern California quartet—Patrick Miranda [vocals], Ira George [guitar], Spencer York [drums], and Austin Cressey [bass]—quietly worked towards this moment since forming in 2015. Following the 2016 EP Outgrown Things, the group cemented a singular sound on their 2017 full-length debut, Feel Something. Eclipsing 40 million total streams by 2020, it immediately connected by way of “Daylilly” [11.1 million Spotify streams], “Full Circle” [6.1 million Spotify streams], and “Colorblind” [5.5 million Spotify streams]. Along the way, the four-piece received acclaim from Brooklyn Vegan, AXS, Rock Sound, Culture Collide, and more. In between packing shows worldwide, they joined forces with Alzheimer’s Association for the “Deadly Dull” video and covered “Losing My Religion” by R.E.M. for the Songs that Saved My Life compilation.
