Moving Units is a dance punk band from Los Angeles, CA, formed in 2001 by Blake Miller (vocals, guitar), Johan Boegli (bass), and Chris Hathwell (drums). They released a self-titled EP in early 2002, followed by their long awaited debut album Dangerous Dreams two years later. Tapping the rhythms, textures, and moods of British post-punk and early new wave as well as anyone else around, Dangerous Dreams brought the sound of Gang of Four, A Certain Ratio and The Pop Group to the 21st century.
Sophomore effort Hexes For Exes (2007) saw the band move on from their proto-post-punk sound and add more synths and beats to the mix, getting you ready to dance in no time. As for their live show, it has inspired nothing short of fanaticism and wild abandon, described by Nylon magazine as “a euphorically smutty, joyfully disenfranchised, danceable call to arms.” Joy Division, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, and The Strokes fans will definitely enjoy this band.
