Movement are a trio from Sydney, Australia, slowly inching out of the shadows and into the light with the Spring release of their self-titled EP. Since unveiling their debut Morgan Geist (Storm Queen/Metro Area) mixed singles, Jesse Ward, Lewis Wade
and Sean Walker have played a string of headline shows in Australia, as well as touring alongside Solange and DARKSIDE.
Their second single Us has clocked up over half a million plays each on YouTube and Soundcloud, while Pitchfork ordained it Best New Track. Live, Jesse and Sean balance lush, atmospheric production with live instrumentation that pushes them beyond the trappings of most electronic acts. This rich foundation sets the stage for the soulful, aching vocals of Lewis – his voice, somewhat restrained on the recordings, emerges live as a massive emotional centerpiece. The 4-track, self-titled EP will be out mid-Spring and the group will be taking their live
show on the road internationally to support its release.
Bel Heir, an alternative pop noir band from Philadelphia, enjoyed significant tastemaker blog coverage in 2013 by releasing a new single on the first Tuesday of every month. That same year also saw the band touring with The Chain Gang of 1974, Magic Man, and Sir Sly, as well as appearances at All Things Go and Neon Gold club nights. Bel Heir are currently writing their full length debut.
