Ahead of the release of their idiosyncratic sophomore album ‘The Curse and The Currency of the Twenty-First Century’, Intergalactic archeologists Moviestar have now shared their dynamic new single ‘The Curse and The Currency‘, out now.
Once again showcasing the eclectic trio’s ability to create a cocktail of sounds that are full of fun and energy, ‘The Curse and the Currency of the Twenty-First Century’ is unapologetically ambiguous from the offset. Latest single ‘The Curse and The Currency’ combines art-pop, sci-fi punk and indie sensibilities in order to create Moviestar’s unpredictably dynamic sound. Fans of the likes of LCD Soundsystem and The Go! Team will feel at home here. Talking about the single, the band explain, “the powers that be put a spell on the 21st century, and we are here to expose it. We’ve become slaves to our own false image and it needs to stop. People are being led to believe that the modern currency of social media is actually worth something, but it is a trap. Our freedom is under attack and this is sad. We feel sorry for the world, as we live inside such a narrow bandwidth, but there is still hope.”
Moviestar are like no other band on earth. Having formed in the future on planet Fenris, Infinity Vik, The Octopus Goddess and Anaconda create their own style of art punk pop, filled with sonic twists and eccentric electronica throughout. The compelling trio were chosen to go on a dangerous mission through space and time to retrieve “the stone” and save the world. Movistar were then sent to Norway, the safest nation in the world, in the dreaded year of 2016.
