Today, The Soul Movers have released their highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Evolution’. Released alongside is the official video for the title track, watch HERE.
The album ‘Evolution’ was written and produced by Sherbet’s Garth Porter (with Tony Mitchell on bass) over three months at Rancom Street, Botany NSW. It sits at the convergence of soul, pop and retro rock and is designed to shake listeners out of a COVID-19 slump and get them feeling good and back into live music venues, and more importantly dance floors.
On beginning the album, Murray & Lizzie said, “‘Evolution’ happened very naturally for us, with early conversations starting with other muso friends on morning swims at Coogee Beach. We first called Rancom Street and found ourselves speaking directly with Garth Porter. Knowing it was Murray’s first-ever live show was Sherbet, we knew it was a sign and locked in some studio time – the rest is history.”
The video for ‘Evolution’ was filmed in St Kilda, Victoria and directed by Lizzie. After the New South Wales and Victorian border opened, Murray & Lizzie grabbed their retro-threads and acoustic guitar and took the revolution to the front of the iconic Palais Theatre. The idea of peace, love and reconnection is what shows in the video and features musicians, writers and vintage store workers of the area – fans of the band they had met through playing shows at Boogie Festival, Cherry Bar and Yah-Yah’s in the past.
