This announce comes on the heels of the beautiful music video for Movement's "Ivory," which has been viewed half a million times on Vimeo.  Directed by Fleur & Manu (M83, Gesaffelstein, Connan Mockasin), the NSFW clip explores the higher planes of ecstasy, a place where time stands still.
For a preview of MOVEMENT's truly stunning show, shot as a part of the "Modular Sessions" in Sydney late last year, watch the below live videos:
Movement EP:
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’
