Movements have shared ‘Tightrope’, the latest track from their forthcoming album ‘Ruckus!’.
The new album was announced last month and is set for release on August 18.
Upon announcing the album, the Southern California outfit also shared the record’s lead single ‘Fail You’.
Today’s release is a much more melancholic offering and arrives with a video that sees vocalist Patrick Miranda and co. floating in the air – have a watch below.
Describing the new track, Miranda has described the range of influence that went into making it and the ambitions the band have for it:
“‘Tightrope’, in some ways, can be seen as the furthest departure we’ve taken from our sound thus far.”
“It lives in a sort of ‘sonic in-between’ of alternative rock, emo, and ballad pop yet there’s still a familiarity that rings true to Movements’ bread and butter.
“We pulled inspiration from all over the place on this one – Justin Bieber-esque pop melodies, Snow Patrol ballad-y instrumentals, and even some drum n’ bass style breakbeats. It’s a weird mashup of shit that ended up turning into something really beautiful.
“At the end of the day, we’re a band whose most popular song is a soft singalong. We’re hoping ‘Tightrope’ might finally be the song to take its place at the top.”
