When was the last time you danced to a beat that seduced you into a swaying, grooving stupor so that before you knew it, the lights were on and last call had already been and gone? And when was the last time you unashamedly enjoyed music from a band reminiscent of the iconic pop electronic synthesized sounds nodding to previous creations by the likes of Dave Stewart, Pet Shop Boys, Editors, The Rakes, Bloc Party, Interpol and She Wants Revenge? Good thing for you Moving Units has just launched a tour in support of their sophomore album Hexes for Exes released on Metropolis Records.

This release is a natural evolution from their debut Dangerous Dreams and this band is no cheap imitation, but a sincere downright good electronic rockin pop delight without limitations and a depth and darkness just for kicks. Indeed, we salute the west coast for coming up trumps with this band and top notch album and offering it to the music loving masses. Your chance to experience Hexes for Exes- loud and direct, plugged in and amped up for your utter pleasure and pervasion- is almost upon you.

Moving Units; Los Angeles based quartet consisting of Blake Miller, Johan Boegli and Chris Hathwell and Victor Velazquez
have made it their mission to revive the dance scene. With their fusion of electronic rock and pop punk, they’re guaranteed to bring people out onto the dance floor and make them gyrate in their skinny black jeans. What Moving Units has done is expand their sound to include anything that felt right to them which luckily for us has resulted in a killer album beginning to end. Including electronic drums and synthesizers, the album evolved into a haunting journey late into the night. Its only a matter of time before Moving Units becomes the influence from which new electronic music is born.
