At the start of this year, I was at a mental crossroads. I was struggling through the long-distance aspect of my relationship, I hated my job, and it started to feel like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. Then, when perusing some music to find some solace, Movements’ “Daylily” hit. There was just something about the riff that sparked tears in my eyes. It was my go-to through February and I’ve really resonated with Feel Something ever since, so I’m more than excited to get to hear the band’s second LP, No Good Left To Give, and give you my thoughts.
California’s MOVEMENTS have partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to debut an emotionally charged video for “Deadly Dull”, a fan favorite off their latest album Feel Something. Directed by Max Moore, the video depicts a vivid representation of effects of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Bands that are difficult to categorize are often in my ballpark. So when I heard Outgrown Things, the 2016 EP (and Fearless Records debut) by California’s Movements, I realized that it was just the first volley of material from a band that is likely to be a household name very soon. A volatile mix of emo, post-hardcore, and pop-punk, Movements combines good songwriting with the unique vocal style of Pat Miranda and a solid rhythm section, to create music that is truly captivating.
I talked with Patrick to discuss the band’s upcoming full-length album (due out later this year), how the band sets themselves apart from the rest of the music scene, and what new fans are saying about the band this summer.
