The Movement’s new single “Siren” (feat. Stick Figure) was released June 30 on Rootfire Cooperative, and debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae chart. This is the followup to 2016’s #1 Billboard reggae album, GOLDEN, and is the band’s first collaboration with producer Johnny Cosmic. When you pair up with one of the founding Reggae Rock groups of this generation, it’s guaranteed to be a hit. We were excited to see that Stick Figure made an appearance to their song because they have similar styles, in a way complementing the rhythm of the sound.
Formed in 2003 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans, Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their “alternative reggae” debut album, ON YOUR FEET. In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce. Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded SET SAIL at DiBeneditto’s Philadelphonic Studios. Set Sail became one of their biggest and most memorable hits and listening to it live now gives you chills of the good times you’ve had and are going to have.
They began working on what would become their finest album to date, GOLDEN, which hit #1 on iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts and was voted 2016 Album Of The Year by Surf Roots Radio. Keyboardist Ross Bogan joined the group in Spring of 2016.
Get your Summer started off right with the smooth sounds of Reggae and the iconic partnership of The Movement and Stick Figure. “Siren” has you feeling some type of way for these upcoming Summer nights. Enjoy!
