Moving Units’ latest has the swagger and sneer of the most iconic rock, combined with catchy, sexy, melancholic dance riffs recalling classics from New Order to the Cure. Opener “Pink Thoughts” is dramatic yet focused, with guitars that remind me of favorite Chameleons songs of yore. Miraculously, even with all these 80’s references, Moving Units never sound dated. Instead, they’ve got enough going on in their novel electronics and within the music’s subtext to come off as fresh and modern. And with lines that repeat “We’re so vain” in the stomping “Crash ‘N’ Burn Victims”, they are bound to be hot stuff on L.A. and NYC dancefloors. (Metropolis) –Selina S.
