With the force of a freight train, the Groove Movement combines soul, funk, rock, and jazz, rarely descending from an elevated sense of enthusiasm on their latest album.
Tracks such as “Classy Vibes,” a typical male conversation centered around the search for a cool chick, exemplify their electrifying musical gumbo, which is seasoned with Desmond Fahie’s thick, magnetic vocals.
“Guardian Angel” and “Sipping on Red Wine” feature simple, sing-along lyrics sure to connect in a live setting, while “Victim,” the band’s radio single, highlights the positives in life, driving the message home with a bit of spoken word.
Don’t be fooled by the chill vibe of their name; this group’s animated material will leave a venue’s walls shaking long after last call.
Check out the group’s upcoming CD release party on Friday, October 24, at Rebar (8134 Broadway). Go to thegroovemovement.com for details.
