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.

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.
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.
