Founded by Anth M and joined in 2013 by Luca and Misa (bass and drums, respectively), the band has built its reputation on the back of a strong but delightfully eerie atmospheric sound – a tripped out blend of shoegaze, space rock with hints of inspiration drawn from any number of genres. 2014 has signaled a further evolution of Last Movement’s sound with the release of some new tracks including the hauntingly addictive “Feels Like You”. It’s got all of the qualities of a Last Movement track – distant but clear, resonating vocals swirling with reverb soaked guitars and chorus-heavy melodic leads – but with a nice little groove to it. The band’s entrancing formula wisps you away over the first three quarters of the song before a crescendo into its big wailing mass of a conclusion. “Feels Like You”, as can be said of Last Movement’s entire body of work, is a breathtaking representation of a new era of dreamy shoegaze music. It’s loud. It’s beautiful. It’s confident.
