Listen: Movement - Ivory

Following two back-to-back Best New Tracks on Pitchfork, Sydney creepers Movement present 'Ivory', the latest single from their forthcoming eponymous EP. 'Ivory' brews sentiment and nostalgia with an almost ominous, stirring drive of slo-mo piano pulses and additional production and mixing from Ilangelo (The Weeknd).

Out May 2 (Aus), May 5 (UK/Euro), May 6 (US), the four track EP sees the band touring Australia during May and June, as well as their first UK headline show en route to FOR Festival in Croatia, playing London's Ace Hotel Basement on Monday June 16th with support from fellow FOR festival artist Baio and Modular DJs.

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.

Modular x Sydney Festival 2014


We're psyched to be involved in two events for Sydney Festival 2014.

First up, Modular are in full party mode with a special Paradiso happening at Town Hall on Friday 17th January. Headlining the event is the visionary Juan Atkins, a man responsible for pioneering the most influential electronic discography since Kraftwerk. Blurring his name across aliases Cybotron, Model 500 and Infinity to release many classics of sublime Detroit techno, Atkins stands as an undisputed driving force in electronic music. Movement will also be bringing their seductive late night sounds to the stage alongside live from Club Mod's wordlife and Roland Tings, and DJ duo Softwar.

Fast forward to Tuesday 21st January for the exclusive NSW premiere of 100 Million Nights at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. Canyons collaborate with visual artist Daniel Boyd to create a mesmerising audio-visual experience, performed live as a four piece band, overlooked by three giant connecting screens that showcase Boyd's breathtaking visuals. They'll be joined on the night by HIVE, former Battles frontman and solo artist Tyondai Braxton's multimedia performance/installation.

Fri 17 Jan - Modular Party @ Paradiso, Town Hall, tickets $36
Tue 21 Jan - 100 Million Nights @ Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House, tickets from $44

Tickets are on sale here at 9AM on Monday 28 October.
