Having returned to the UK last month for a brief run of shows alongside appearing at the Slam Dunk Festival, Movements continue to preview their upcoming ‘RUCKUS!‘ full-length. Today sees them share a track titled ‘Tightrope’.
It sees the So Cal post-hardcore provide a compelling, slow-burning number that sees Patrick Miranda’s plaintive and emotive vocals take centre stage.
“‘Tightrope,’ in some ways, can be seen as the furthest departure we’ve taken from our sound thus far,” says Miranda. “It lives in a sort of ‘sonic in-between’ of alternative rock, emo, and ballad pop yet there’s still a familiarity that rings true to Movements’ bread and butter. We pulled inspiration from all over the place on this one —Justin Bieber-esque pop melodies, Snow Patrol ballad-y instrumentals, and even some drum ‘n’ bass style breakbeats. It’s a weird mashup of shit that ended up turning into something really beautiful. At the end of the day, we’re a band whose most popular song is a soft singalong. We’re hoping ‘Tightrope’ might finally be the song to take its place at the top.”
‘RUCKUS!’ is released on 18th August via Fearless Records. Fans can pre-order ‘RUCKUS!’ here.
