Hailed for pioneering post-punk, indie-dance music – a sound often reflected by today’s contemporaries, Los Angeles’ MOVING UNITS, now ten years into their career, are set to release a new LP. From the push and pull that ensues during an unspoken attraction, to the dynamic of living in Los Angeles – a city of symbolism and paraphernalia of glamour, versus the desperation and disillusionment of the people who aspire to such entrapments…tension is everywhere. These are their rhythms.
SOME EMBER are a dark lush landscape of brooding, swirling post punk cold wave minimalism, all pulsing muted synths, spare percussion, shimmery atmospheres, thick, crumbling industrial swells, hushed melancholic melodies, all blurred into a murky, washed out dirge pop dreamscape. These are the sounds of low-life, black celebration and disintegration.
