In Sweden around year 2000, there were a lot of people rediscovering sixties garage rock bands such as The Sonics, The Seeds and other similar bands. A revival started, and a lots of new Swedish groups started to pop up. The Movements came along 2001, as one of the groups that tried to bring this music into the future. Inspired not only by the psychedelic music from the sixties but also by kraut rock, space rock, punk and all forms of contemporary music, they have come to create a very dynamic sound.
Early on the band began to get a buzz for being a wild live act at clubs in their hometown Göteborg. Since the release of their debut EP Drag me up, they have developed into being a hard touring band and have the last years frequently been on tour all over Europe, gaining much notice for their combination of brilliant music making and great live performances.
Productionwise they are since some years ago cooperating with producer Björn Olsson (starring from Union Carbide Productions and Soundtrack Of Our Lives), who has produced most of The Movements' released tracks. Early 2009 they released their second full length album "The world, the flesh and the devil" and they are also in the process of finishing their third album.
