The California band, Moving Units was formed in 2001 and released their first EP a year later. Having a unique dance-punk sound, they have toured with numerous bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Hot Hot Heat, Blur, and the Pixies to name a few. I was introduced to them by a good friend In Jersey around the time their full length album, Dangerous Dreams, came out. I was a fan instantly.

The album is full of catchy guitar riffs and dance driven bass lines with a perfect side of drum beats. If it doesn’t get you up and moving, than I don’t know what will. The production of the album is great as well. Everything is super clear and in focus, a real nice sound. I must admit Between Us & Them is my favorite track but some others I really dig are Going for Adds, Anyone, Scars, and Turn Away. However, all the songs are really good. Perfect music for a party.

The album artwork and its color palette matches the tone of the album perfectly. Bright colors partnered with gray undertones. The band has such a fresh sound and these neon hues accent it nicely. I also like how the illustration plays on movement, which gives it more interest.
