The Release of ‘Feel Something’ by Movements

Movements is a pop punk group from Orange County, CA. On Oct. 20, Movements released their first full length album Feel Something via. Fearless Records.

This is their latest work since their EP Outgrown Things. The singles released off of the album are “Colorblind” andDeadly Dull.”

Here is the track list:

  1. Full Circle
  2. Third Degree
  3. Colorblind
  4. Daylily
  5. Deadly Dull
  6. Fever Dream
  7. Suffer Through
  8. Deep Red
  9. Under The Gun
  10. Submerge
  11. The Grey


The album is exactly what I expected it to be. The album is raw and displays a lot of emotion. Patrick Miranda, vocalist of Movements, has an excellent way of showing vulnerability with the use if spoken word. Instrumentally, the songs have variation with the speed and build of their songs.

The lyrical concent of their album is primarily about relationships. The song “Deadly Dull” displays how Miranda’s family is affected by his grandparent’s Alzheimer’s. Its visual with the help of the lyrics and pulls at your heart strings. Movements played their singles “Deadly Dull” and “Colorblind” at the Vans Warped Tour 2017.

The songs that stand out to me off of the album after hearing the album in its entirety are: “Deadly Dull,” Submerge,” and “The Grey.” Congratulations to the gentlemen in Movements for putting together a wonderful work of art.

Movements is touring with Knuckle Puck across the United States and the United Kingdom. Tickets and tour information can be found here.

In other news, The Dangerous Summer released a new single “Fire” off of their upcoming album The Dangerous Summer set to release Jan. 26.

Shapeshifter has a 10 song track list including the singles “Double Helix,” “Gone,” and “Want Me Around.” The album in full is approximately 31 minutes. Here is the track list:

This is a great sophomore album for Knuckle Puck. Shapeshifter has a similar sound to their first full length album Copacetic. Knuckle Puck is a distinct pop punk band with the high intensity instrumentals and recognizable voice. Knuckle Puck got praise from The Maine, Sleep On It, Alternative Press, and more. The album is consistent and a quality album that you should check out if you like pop punk music.

Concert Review: Paramore @ Radio City Music Hall

Paramore is a ‘genre neutral’ band from Franklin, TN. I attended the Paramore show in New York City in Radio City Music Hall on Oct. 4.


Opening for Paramore was Best Coast. I got to the venue near the end of Best Coast’s set. I waited on line and purchased an All We Know Is Falling vinyl and got to my seat. After waiting a half hour, Paramore took the stage. Here is the setlist:

  1. Hard Times
  2. Ignorance
  3. Still Into You
  4. Daydreaming
  5. Forgiveness
  6. Brick By Boring Brick
  7. Playing God
  8. That’s What You Get
  9. I Caught Myself
  10. Hate To See Your Heart Break
  11. 26
  12. Told You So
  13. Everywhere (Fleetwood Mac Cover)
  14. Fake Happy
  15. Misery Business
  16. Ain’t It Fun
  17. Caught In The Middle *ENCORE*
  18. Scooby’s in the Back (Halfnoise Cover) *ENCORE*
  19. Rose- Colored Boy *ENCORE*


Everytime I see Paramore perform, it’s always an emotional experience. When Paramore slowed down the set with “26” and “Hate To See Your Heart Break” it was somber in the venue. Paramore played a lot of songs that were popular like “Misery Business,” “Ain’t It Fun,” “That’s What You Get,” “Hard Times.” Paramore is great with connecting with the crowd and letting fans know that it’s okay to feel sad. I wish that Paramore played a song or two from their album All We Know Is Falling and expanded their setlist adding two or three more songs. If you have yet to see Paramore live, I highly recommend it.

In other news, Vinyl Theatre released a new song “Me, Myself, and I” and Knuckle Puck released “Want Me Around.” Check out those new songs and let me know what you think about them by tweeting to me @ovictoriamedia.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
