Haven’t we had enough of SoCal alt. bands?” said me, moments before Movements took to the stage one dreary post-Covid gig evening last year. Past me quickly ate my words, ‘cause this lot is worth my time – and yours.

Hailing from the US, Movements have become, quite paradoxically, a well-established underground band. They appreciate their UK crowds as much as they are appreciated in turn, so the release of their third album RUCKUS! has been appropriately anticipated. With a delectable mix of growling hardcore riffs and strained emo-revivalicious vocals (Lead Pipe), twinkling indie melodies and soft lyricisms (Heaven Sent), and bittersweet self-deprecating anthems that you wish weren’t as relatable as they are (Fail You), Movements’ next moves are sure to be well received by fans new and old.
