Maybe you’ve seen them bumped on the Colbert Report, maybe you’ve heard their latest release “Sammy Davis Jr” while searching for cool Rat Pack posters online, maybe you’re that friend who spends her summers in Sweden teaching Russian kids English and Swedish kids how to cornhole in order to finance your overseas drug and music addictions… Any way you’ve heard about The Movits! is a good one, because THEY ROCK!
It’s a good rule of thumb that if you’re going to tout an exclamation point right off the bat in the name of your group, your OOMPH had better be palpable (or, in keeping with 2008 CD Appelknyckarjazz, PULPABLE!) and I daresay the Movits! uphold that standard with piercing pizazz.
This Swedish swing/ jazz/ hip-hop infused group is a crowd pleaser, a glorious combination of off the wall Euro-pop energy, crazy song topics (think Swedish Modest Mouse), and mastery of the Chucks with Tux fashion style.
