'…purpose and urgency seeps forth on the arrangements, but there remains distinction in the lyrics and vocals that match this on every level.' U & I Music Magazine The Moves follow up on their 2013 release Human Shield with their second studio album Negative Space: eight blissful songs that take you on a mesmerising journey, from the flighty Gates Wide Open to the didactic Take Me Back To The Stars. On Negative Space, The Moves pull no punches, striking a balance between sophisticated electronic melodies and indelible, thought provoking lyrics and incantations that bring each song vividly to life. Negative Space will be available in stores and online in CD and 12" Vinyl formats and as a lossless digital download. The Moves are David Banim, Paul Maguire and Philip Kelly. David, Philip and Paul have produced music under many guises and have had several previous releases including, Darth Fader on Dublin: Independent Blips & Bleeps as PBR Street-Gang and over 25,000 plays of Lip Service as Saliva 45 . 2013 saw The Moves release their first studio album Human Shield. Negative Space was recorded in Dublin between August 2013 and December 2014 in Elektra Studios Temple Bar with Alan Kennedy engineering and mastered by Aidan Foley at Masterlabs. With cover artwork by Sattchi featured artist Neal Burns. . Across the eight songs of Negative Space, The Moves aim to distill the extended format of conventional electronic music, back to the pure, unadulterated sweetness and potency of shorter, more concise compositions. The same format can also be distinguished on The Moves previous record Human Shield and is refined further on Negative Space. This approach was the basis of the record from the outset, i.e. to write functioning dance beat based records that are condensed, and less sprawling than the more lengthy structure that has come to define this genre. The song Subterraneans is to be part of the sound-track for a feature film, which is currently in development.
