Movits! to Release Sophomore Album on April 5

Out of My Head, the sophomore release from Swedish sensation Movits! will be released April 5 on Slimstyle Records and distributed by The Alternative Distribution Alliance. The album is riding on a wave of breakout years for the trio, whose 2008 debut album, Appelknyckarjazz.

Hailing from Luleå, Sweden, brothers Johan and Anders Rensfeldt, along with friend Joakim Nilsson, were longtime fans and performers of hip hop. But it wasn’t until a music festival after-party that they really discovered swing music. “It was a simultaneous revelation. We were out dancing in a backyard when someone put on Benny Goodman’s ‘Sing, Sing, Sing.’ The three of us were totally blown away!”

The new record was recorded live over a four month period in the winter of 2010 at their studio in Luleå. Of the new album, the trio notes, “We didn’t have a set theme in making Out Of My Head. All we knew was that we wanted to make tracks you won’t be able to stand still when hearing.”

Check out the video of their song Sammy Davis Jr.
