"We all must go" by MOVMENT
Although guitars and bass are at the heart of their sound, it is hard to ignore the electronics that have infiltrated Movment’s core.

We all must go
Es ist die dritte Single aus ihrem aktuellen Album TRANSFORMATION. Movment melden sich mit "We all must go" zurück. Nach "Propaganda" und "Leave me alone" reduzieren sie etwas das Tempo
und setzen auf den Kontrast ohne dabei ihre musikalischen Eckpfeiler zu verlassen.
Abwechslung, Rotation und Veränderung bestimmen den Song. Wo gehen wir hin, wenn alles vorbei ist, denn gehen müssen wir alle eines Tages. Das große Unbekannte wartet bereits. Die Musik greift dieses Thema auf und gibt es eindrucksvoll wieder, eindrucksvoll im Sinne von überraschende Wendungen die für stetige Veränderungen sorgen.
Unerwartet wird transferiert und neu geordnet, fast dem Anfang einer Transformation gleich wird in ständiger Metamorphose dirigiert. Movment greifen sich den Taktstock und sorgen mit ihrem neuen Track "We all must go" wieder für Erstaunen. Dritte Single, dritte Überraschung, gespannt warte ich bereits auf ihre nächste Inszenierung.
Nachstehend noch ein kurzer Q&A part wo man interessantes über den Song, wie aber auch ihr neues Album erfährt.
What was your inspiration for "We all must go”?
KK: The song is about dying, and what to expect. Everyone has to go, at some stage. But rather than seeing it as the end, it could be the beginning of something else. And I see light as a big part of it, like being in a tunnel and arriving at the other end, and being blinded by the light. We know so little about it.
I know some people see death as the end, and we just end up in the ground or cremated and that's it.
Perhaps we do. But we just don't know. So the song is really about what happens when we go. So rather than dwell on it, we should live life to the full, and accept it is inevitable we will go.
I like the varied structure of the track, did you change your working process a bit?
MK: We sometimes write to a bass line. Sing vocals to a bass line with drums which we did in this case.
KK: Also we were using a sequencer and Maschine, which influenced the structure of the song. These days there are lots of tools available to write and structure a track. This was one that started as a demo with bass and vocals, but evolved into this structure. Guitars and riffs were added later on. I think it works...
Your new album "Transformation" has been released on 02.Dec.2021, what can we expect?
MK: I think there will be something for everyone on the album. Rock, synth based tracks, Each track has its own style and story.
KK: Yeah, ultimately it is a rock album, with guitar prominent on most tracks. In fact the first 2 singles have a synth influence, while the rest of the album is mostly guitar based. It will be interesting to experiment with rock and synths on the next album, which we have just started..
What song on the album makes you proud?
MK: I love Blood Like Water, that would be my favourite and I love playing Propaganda and Leave me alone.
KK: I like We All Must Go, both the song topic, and the structure is interesting. It has a good feel and rhythm. But throughout the album there are riffs and synth pieces that I like, like the guitar riff at the start of On and On. And I find the lyrics great. Some lines stand out to me like "Your Time Is Now!" or "Give It Your Best Shot!"
...and what song took the most of your time (and why)?
MK: What We Are: It took a lot of work and we changed it a few times so there are a few versions of it. The lyrics were changed quite a bit. But the final track works well.
KK: Yes, the songs evolved quite a bit from the original demo versions. And almost all of the songs needed extra bits added, so a lot of effort was put into each song. For me, Everything Will Be Clear and On And On took the most time to finish.
How would you describe 2021?
MK: 2021 was very good for us for rehearsing and recording. We also got to finalise Transformation. So it was good for us that way. But live gigs were non-existent for us and probably for all bands.
KK: I had plenty of time to experiment with software, and new hardware, and new synths. I got to play lots of guitar too. The home studio got a lot of use. It was a great time to work on writing and recording songs.
What’s next for you?
MK: We are playing live in Mullingar in December and probably the Electric Picnic festival in September 2022.
KK: And we would hope to play live as much as we can in 2022, and some international gigs, if we can arrange them.
