Best New Track for ‘Us’ and ‘Like Lust’ - Pitchfork
“When first hearing Movement it would be understandable to assume it was just one producer weaving hazy, smooth sounds while repeating vocal phrases like mantras. But this is a band, and watching them play this music and sing these vocals in front of you is breathtaking.” -Stereogum
“Sydney’s Movement drops what is probably their best song yet (although “Like Lust” continues to creep on us in the best way) in the spectral/sexy new track Ivory” - Gorilla vs Bear
“…(a) swampy mid-tempo jammer with a yearning chord progression and the sort of heavy-chested, late night atmosphere that sounds really nice inside headphones.” – The Fader on ‘Ivory’
Movement have been honing their live show with support slots on tours with Solange and Darkside. Get a taste of what to expect on their upcoming dates via the previously released videos for ‘Us’ and ‘Like Lust’.
All upcoming tour dates are listed below. Tickets for the Los Angeles show at the Echo go on sale this Thursday, May 1st. All other shows go on sale Friday, May 2nd.
