First Listen: The Movement – Cool Me Down

Coming off the success of 2016’s Billboard Reggae Chart topper Golden released on the Rootfire Cooperative, The Movement is back with their first single of 2018, “Cool Me Down.” Contrary to its title, this slow-burner from the South Carolina reggae-rockers brings the heat.

Produced by Johnny Cosmic and tracked at 
White Star Sound in Louisa, VA, “Cool Me Down” takes the listener into a wide sonic landscape of drums and bass painted with synth-soaked vibrancy. Joshua Swain’s vocals lead you through the journey, but this track is all about the intricate arrangement of perfected tonal layers floating on top of the rock solid foundation of a band truly hitting their musical stride. “Cool Me Down” gives a taste of The Movement in 2018: brimming with confidence and creative vitality that feels nothing but alive.

Pre-Order “Cool Me Down” on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play

The Movement kicks off the Heatseekers 2018 Winter Tour with Iration and Tyrone’s Jacket today.
