ABOUT THE ALBUM:
New album MOVEMENTS is 11 songs conceived in their east London basement studio, produced by band member Tom Wegg-Prosser with additional glitter added by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA Records, LCD Soundsystem, Unkle, Mo' Wax). It is music from the sweaty hearts of husband and wife Tom and Dede and band mate Darren Bancroft. WHB toured their previous releases intensely, and now they are taking it back to the dance floor - the place that inspired them to make music together in the first place.
MOVEMENTS celebrates the sacred union of beat and lyric. When Darren sings on 'You Only', "Your movements stayed with me all day long, your mind was always on mine" it is the Moog line working with the vocal melody that stays with you. Dede's assertion on 'Burning On My Lips' that, "Standing in the line, first to lose my mind, don't tell me that it's wrong, this is where I belong" is delivered with a conviction that the kick drum stamps out with every pulse. It is that repetitious, powerful mantra that makes MOVEMENTS a record impossible not to feel, impossible not to move to. The record that the band always set out to make.
