I realized something. I’ve been doing these music posts for a year now, and I still haven’t shared one of my most favorite bands with you. What?!
This was the first week where I didn’t have a song scheduled. I was out running on Monday, and this came on. It’s one of those that have been on my iPod for an indefinite amount of time and I never skip it. Moving Mountains isn’t a very well known band, but they should be. The only way I can describe them is grand. They are extremely talented musicians, and their music always just has this beautiful build to it. The lead singer has such an interesting voice – sometimes he comes across as very soft and lilting, but other times he actually does a little screaming and it just works.
My brother introduced me to these guys, and their instrumentals are unmatched. Some of their songs are almost 10 minutes long, but those aren’t about the vocals. They are just so damn good. I’ve seen them in concert twice, and actually met them last time. My brother and I are on the ends, the band members in the middle:
I’m actually considering using this song for my next pole routine, whenever that is. I already have some ideas for moves that would look awesome with this song. If you prefer a “softer” song, check out Sol Solis – it’s one of the prettiest songs I know 🙂 If you prefer something on the heavier side, check out My Life is a Chase Dream. The video for this song, The Cascade, is really pretty and was filmed in Iceland.
Have you ever met any famous bands/musicians?
