Hozier is certainly looking to wow his fans with his upcoming sophomore album. With the release of his Nina Cried Power – EP, the soul-inspired songwriter smashed back onto the scene after a long hiatus and set a high bar for whatever he would do next. His new single, “Movement”, has lived up to the hype.
The subdued verses on “Movement” soon burst into an atmospheric chorus; Hozier crooning with more passion than we’ve maybe ever heard from him before. A stripped down instrumental gives room for the gorgeous background vocals to shine as well. It all harmoniously convenes into a final show-stopping chorus and brings “Movement” into the realm of some of Hozier’s very best singles.
So move me, baby/Shake like the bough of a willow tree/You do it naturally/Move me, baby.
Along with the new track comes a video component as well. Hozier’s smooth vocals are accompanied by a breathtaking interpretive dance through multiple abandoned sites. Though the dancer moves through such lonely, empty spaces, the raw emotion from the choreography lights up the screen and acts as a perfect counterpart to the tune.
