Movement Release NSFW 'Ivory' Video and Announce Australian Tour

'Ivory', a standout from Movement's debut EP released earlier this year on Modular Recordings, now has a video. Directed by Fleur & Manu (M83, Gesaffelstein, Connan Mockasin), the NSFW video paints a stark, delicate picture of love and lust, nudity, intimacy and sexuality, of two bodies merging into one like colours running together in a tableau. It's a deep, surrealist meditation on the physical act of love and two individuals perceptions of what that is.

After wrapping their first run of international tour dates last month, Movement are also pleased to announce they'll be taking their evocative soul along the Australian East Coast this September. The tour is on sale now and will be followed by a 26-date US run in support of Twin Shadow's synth-pop, playing venues of up to 3000 people.

Listen: Movement - Like Lust

Sydney trio Movement reveal their new track 'Like Lust', the lead track from their forthcoming self-titled EP. Made up of a slow-burning anti-song structure with a looping groove, it was recorded by the band at home, then optimized by Canadian producer and The Weeknd foil Illangelo, who was later recruited to provide additional production and mixing.

In the space of the past ten months, Jesse Ward, Lewis Wade and Sean Walker aka Movement released their first two singles, 'Feel Real' and 'Us', played a handful of shows, toured alongside Solange and will soon take to the stage with DARKSIDE. They clocked up over half a million plays each on YouTube and soundcloud, nabbed Best New Track (for 'Us') on Pitchfork, and all the while never shifted their focus from the new - the first fruits of which we share today.
