Sound Of The Underground: Movment

“There is a divergence in society,” observe fascinating alternative rock band, Movment, who hail from Ireland. They go on to say: “the new album Transformation, due in December 2021, explores this situation. We are bombarded with information, opinions, viewpoints, and words. We drown in ideas, in solutions, in propaganda. There needs to be a TRANSFORMATION from where we are now.

Although guitars and bass are at the heart of their sound, it is hard to ignore the electronics that have infiltrated Movment’s core.”

Movment are a duo comprising Martin Kelly – Vocals, Drums, Words and Kevin Kelly – Guitars, Bass, Keyboards, Synths, Programming, Words. Their music fits easily into the darkwave category. This is eerie rock music with electronic tones that is designed to provoke and thrill in equal measure. For comparison, think Velvet Undergound, Slint, Magazine and a whole host of other post-punk (and pre-punk!) wonders, including Echo and the Bunnymen, Nick Cave and Wire. If any of the above appeal, I wouldn’t hesitate to check out Movment.
