Like many of groups of late, Australian trio Movement’s self-titled debut is a product of the convergence between electronic music and R&B, and channels elements of both genres. You may even hear echoes of The Weeknd’s House of Balloons, and for good reason, the record contains contributions, on both production and mixing, from The Weeknd’s go-to producer Illangelo.
Layering sensual vocals over experimental production, the Movement creates an intimate yet progressive vibe. Take the track “Ivory” for example, which features breathy vocals over pulsing beats and steady piano chords (again recalling The Weeknd’s influence). The mysterious atmosphere that the trio builds flows through the record effortlessly and will have you riding a good dose of chillwaves.
