Movements Releases Surprise New Single “Barbed Wire Body”


California emo outfit Movements have returned with a surprise new single “Barbed Wire Body“. The track feels like a continuation and natural progression from the band’s 2020 sophomore album ‘No Good Left To Give’, taking on a more high energy indie rock inspired sound as opposed to the group’s usual melancholic post-hardcore. It’s fast drum and bass groove drives the track forward, instantly catching the listener’s attention supported by consistently energetic guitars and a fantastic chorus hook effortlessly delivered by frontman Patrick Miranda

In a press release, Miranda stated about the song:

“‘Barbed Wire Body’ is a departure from the ‘typical’ Movements song, we usually have more ebbs and flows in the dynamics of our songs. However, with this song, we really just aimed for a high energy, loud, in-your-face track that has little regard for our usual sound. We wanted to write an upbeat track with tons of energy that just felt fun and exciting. I think this song is the first of a new era of songwriting for us.

It’s narrative follows “a person who seeks validation from others by way of intimacy, however, this person remains closed off and is unwilling to let their emotional guard down for fear of being hurt. It’s the story of someone who jumps from casual relationship to casual relationship, but always leaves before they can let themself truly be emotionally vulnerable.”

Mateo Ottie I make loud guitar noises and have unpopular opinions. If it’s underground alternative or progressive metal, I probably like it.
