Moving Mountains: A Live Review

I don't know how many of you have heard of Moving Mountains. A band from Westchester, NY, they are fresh off a tour with Thursday, about to embark on a tour with Say Anything.

Moving Mountains has come back to their home ground for a day between tours, playing at SUNY Purchase, where they have gathered an insanely unreal amount of followers.

The bands set up is unusual. First, all the lights go out. Pitch black, the band opens up with a single off their newest release, Forward EP. The quiet guitars from Armslength penetrate the pitch black of the stage, and throughout the song, everyones eyes adjust to the darkness and eventually, you can barely make out the silhouettes of the four members. Suddenly, as the chorus errupts, lights behind the drums flare on as fans scream along... "Because you are my own!".


The air is filled with emotions as the band churns out song after song, and the croud sings along to every word. The members flail around stage, all without missing a note, a beat, a lyric. It seems as if Moving Mountains has been doing this for years.


As their set closes, the fans flee to the merch table to scrape up whatever they can to support this band. I suggest you do the same. Check them out at their website and go to their shows. Its an experiance.
