Biography

Moving Units was formed in 2001 by Chris Hathwell, Blake Miller, and Johan Boegli as a response to what the band refers to as "an uninspired music scene". The band selected the name Moving Units to express their distaste for the sales-obsessed mentality of the record industry.

Editorial Reviews

Moving Units was formed in 2001 by Chris Hathwell, Blake Miller, and Johan Boegli as a response to what the band refers to as "an uninspired music scene." Thanks to their compelling mixture of Post-Punk and Dance Rock and incredible live shows Moving Units have garnered quite a following. In 2007, Moving Units joined Metropolis Records for the release of their new album Hexes For Exes. From the infectiously catchy guitar lines, the dance electronic synths and rhythms, the album immediately stands out, with foot-tapping hooks making you take notice of the depth of the lyrics. Hexes For Exes is an album that has aimed at the dance floors, with a swagger bass hooks made for moving to. The slower tempo of 'Kings And Queens Of Nothing' and 'Hearts Departed', with its stripped down vocals and echoing guitar sound, are a striking counterpoint to the dance vibes of the album, rounded out perfectly by the and playful rhymes of 'Blood Beats'. Hexes For Exes breathes new life into dance rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great!!! Sophmore album October 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Hexes For Exes Is one of my top buys of this year. Moving Units first album was more Funk and Disco. While Hex is more Electro. The sound of the album is Joy Division's "Love will Tear Us Apart" with a Blend of Interpol's "Obstacle one," and a bit Of Justices "D.A.N.C.E." Sprinkled on Top. Good mix and it will get you ready to dance in No Time. So Stop thinking about it and spend 14 bucks!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars In Constant Rotation December 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Excellent Album.
Having had this album for nearly a year now, it remains in heavy play for me. Looking forward to more from this band. They've picked up the fallen banner of Joy Division and I hope they carry it far. Having enjoyed the Editors and She Wants Revenge, I gave this album a try and it's come out on top. Skipping right over the boring cardboard taste of 90's & early 2k drivel of coldplay & their clones, Moving Units pulls from the best of 80's dark wave and recreates it into something fuller. Just buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Post punk perfection February 1, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the other reviewer that mentioned similarities to Joy Division's "Love will tear us apart". Definitely got the 80's new wave and post-punk in there. Good album. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This band serious rules January 30, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
With a wonderful mix of 80s pop new wave and modern edge, Moving Units' post-punk edge is followed by some nice riffs and a fantastic lead singer whose vocals are highly palpable in today's music market. Anyone who is has some roots in 80s rock will enjoy this band. While to some it may sound derivative, it's far from it. Dark Walls in an amazing composition with surprising little acclaim as it is not the most downloaded single on the Hexes release. Each song contains its own riff-driven cadence with all the fervor of vintage Depeche Mode and Dead or Alive or New Order. And yes, there is a tinge of Duran Duran spattered in there, but not enough to say a Simon rip. It has all the workings of a great pop contribution. Hence this band does not try to 'hide' their influences in any way - a refreshing change from some of today's more clandestine artists who prefer to rip without so much as a cursory mention of the artists of yesteryear they are boring from...

All the other songs move and pop like one would expect from a band that pays homage to the era while keeping its feet firmly planted in the present.

Great addition to any music collection. By far, one of the better unknown-knowns out there. Strongly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars When U2 meets Duran Duran meets Depeche Mode January 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was suggested this CD after listening and rating the last We Are Wolves CD. But that's really all. This album sounds highly slick produced and a breed between U2 and Depeche Mode with a little Duran Duran in the mix as well. And I don't like those bands. We Are Wolves is much more interesting than this.
