A new era has just kicked off for Movements. Following on from a flurry of standalone singles in 2022, which served as a follow-up to the band’s 2020 album No Good Left To Give, the band are stepping into a new lane and expanding their sonic universe even more. And they have shared not just one new track, but TWO.

The band explain a little about what their intentions were with this drop:

“We feel they are the perfect introduction to a new era of Movements. These songs incorporate the core values and themes you’d expect from a Movements song — but they’re packaged up in a much different manner.”

The first is “Killing Time”, a silky and sensual track that slivers around the ear with decadence and delight. A love song at its core, the love in question is described as being deep that it may end in devastation.

The band had this to say about it:

“Killing Time” packs quite a bit of groove, tension, and dissonance. To that end, the band states that it’s “a love song with a dark, self-deprecating undertone. The verses are gritty and dense, the choruses open up into an almost pop-centric singalong before diving into a crushing bridge that exemplifies a love so strong that it can (and probably will) end up killing the narrator.”

In comparison, the other track, “Lead Pipe,” is a flurry of fury. Perhaps the sentiment is much the same, with darkness at its core, it attacks the senses and delivers hit after hit of gripping emotion.

The band explain:

“[This is] a classic mental health track, but one that you probably wouldn’t expect or even realize on first listen. The narrator here is describing the moment they realize their dark past is coming back to haunt them. Something they thought they’d overcome is suddenly knocking at the door and will do anything to get back in. However, this time is different. Our narrator is hellbent on ending that struggle once and for all, and has chosen to fight back instead of give in.”

Together the tracks paint a picture of a band letting loose more than ever and letting their creativity and passion run riot, which is a good sign for whatever may be coming next. They serve as a direct follow-up to last year’s “Cherry Thrill” which sounds an awful lot like this:
