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.

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.

Album Review: The Peace And The Panic by Neck Deep

After releasing singles “Happy Judgement Day,” “Where Do We Go When We Go,” “Motion Sickness,” and “In Bloom,” the pop punk group Neck Deep released their album The Peace And The Panic today via. Hopeless Records.


This album is the third album (others include Wishful Thinking and Life’s Not Out To Get You) Neck Deep has released under this record label. Vocalist Ben Barlow said in an interview with Alternative Press that the new album that the new album displays how he’s grown and experienced life and death.

Here is the track list:

  1. Motion Sickness
  2. Happy Judgement Day
  3. The Grand Delusion
  4. Parachute
  5. In Bloom
  6. Don’t Wait (Feat. Sam Carter)
  7. Critical Mistake
  8. Wish You Were Here
  9. Heavy Lies
  10. 19 Seventy Sumthin’
  11. Where Do We Go When We Go

After hearing the singles released, I was excited to hear the rest of The Peace And The Panic. “In Bloom” was the most recent single released which was refreshing to hear. I like the fact that Neck Deep still kept their pop punk roots (i.e. “Motion Sickness,”) heavy lyrics (i.e. “Wish You Were Here”), but is a bit experimental with songs like “In Bloom,” “Critical Mistake,” and “19 Seventy Sumthin‘” with a lighter and more pop sound. It was nice to see that Neck Deep isn’t sticking to a mold of the music that they’ve previously released. This album is different from Life’s Not Out To Get Youit has pop punk roots (i.e. “Motion Sickness,”) heavy/ raw lyrics (i.e. Wish You Were Here,”) and has the element of experimentation (especially with tracks like “In Bloom,” “Critical Mistake” and “19 Seventy Sumthin'”). This album is a perfect example of how Neck Deep will continue to grow and that their albums will be more than a part two of LNOTGY.

If you want a pop punk fix, I highly recommend checking out the album. My favorites off of this album have to be “In Bloom,” and “19 Seventy Sumthin'” for the reason that “In Bloom” was the first single released that showed a different side to Neck Deep that what is expected. The introduction with the instrumentals reminds me of Blink- 182. I love that “19 Seventy Sumthin'” is a song that’s so raw and full of deep emotion. The song explains a lot about Ben Barlow’s parents and what had happened with his father’s passing.

Neck Deep will be touring across the United States in January and February. There is no word yet if there is any band accompanying them at this time. Tickets and tour information can be found here. Neck Deep is also on the cover of Alternative Press.

In other news, The Maine released the music video for “Taxi” and announced additional dates for their upcoming tour with DREAMERS and Night Riots (tickets and tour information can be found here.) Weezer announced their upcoming album Pacific Daydream will debut on Oct. 27 and released “Mexican Fender.” Brand New announced a tour from September to November across the United States (tickets and tour information can be found here) and hear Science Fiction here.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
