Night Moves

Roosevelt has long felt like an act waiting for that one crossover hit before spilling over into mainstream consciousness. While the Cologne based Greco-Roman Records mainstay hasn’t unveiled a significant amount of production since 2013’s excellent Elliot EP, save for some choice remixes and covers, we’ve been waiting for any sort of indication as to when we’ll be afforded the fortuitous opportunity of another Roosevelt record for well… a few years now. And so, as Greco-Roman’s Soundcloud rather unexpectedly dropped the first original single from Roosevelt since last year, “Night Moves”, we took notice like a perked up prairie dog peering out of its hole. All of Roosevelt’s sonic elements on which we’ve grown to love are still there; the warm and suffuse melodies, the soothing psychedelia and the streamlined pop structures, but this time around they’ve wrapped themselves much more closely than ever to the realm of dance music. Carefully layed out acid synth -which leans into Phuture’s 1987 vision more than his tastemaking contemporaries might stray towards- worms its way throughout Roosevelt’s thick sea of pop mutations, while a steady four-four kick never relinquishes its hold on the entire track. We could go on for hours about the finely tuned single that is “Night Moves”, but we know you all came here to listen over anything else. Indulge yourself above.
