Agent K Excellent Aussie Dream Pop duo that is cut from a different cloth.
Very compelling guitar dynamics blended with male/female vocals. Found this to be cosmic hypnotic ride of "psychedelia" played through the haze of modern shoegaze.
Very compelling and stellar vocal harmonies.
"The Last Time" could have been a single released by Creation records in its heyday. Favorite track: The Last Time.

"For a totally different flavor, Australian/Japanese/British The Sound Movement are more the classic English ethereal group - it's like the two groups are clashes of our respective nations' indie prototypes-playing an effects-driven, harmonic dazzle that reminds of what I still love about Blue Oyster Cult retrofitting The Byrds on "Don't Fear the Reaper" It's a gentler, subtler waves of guitar spell, more spacey-capacious like a fragrant flower perfume attack, allowing the imagination to run riot instead. This is even better! "

Jack Rabid - The Big Takeover Magazine ISSUE 73 (New York City)

"With pulsating harmonics, glass-cutter riffs, motorik rhythms and a white-hot whirlwind heart, 'The Last Time' flows and crashes like an ocean conducted by Jason Pierce - The Sound Movement are the Bruce Lee of pop; refusing form, they adapt, build and grow - like water. Empty your mind." Peter Guy Liverpool Echo (UK)

Track Name: The Last Time

You talk to me when you're disengaged
You're thoughts were there but they were always distant
Why do you need this around the clock attention
Why are you looking to me when there's a world of distractions

When was the last time we really talked
When was the last time we really thought
When was the last we made the time
When was the last time it crossed your mind

These are drifting days, can we stay this way
And be scared of change
Can this be the last time, that you read my mind
That we share our lives

Sometimes we don't feel like waiting
Sometimes we don't feel like playing games
Sometimes we wanna see a reaction
Sometimes we wanna see destruction

Track Name: Perspective

There's a place we used to go
Where we could be alone
Away from the sounds of the street
Where I could hear your heartbeat

It will never be easy now with everyone passing you by
You always look down (with your eyes on the ground)
With your thoughts hanging high
It doesn't get any easier and if you don't be careful you'll fall
Don't take your eyes off her eyes or she'll leave you tonight

Out here there's only one star
On this murky sky
And there's a billion others
Beyond the naked eye

Track Name: Art of Leaving

I saw you on a pale blue early morning
I watched you walk away
Now you'd lived it all
All there is to see and all there is to say
There must be something out there anyway
That makes a difference

Just one kiss is everything
There's nothing else to take
There's no-one in the way
I'd rather start again
I'd rather run away
Than stay here rotting
Than live here dying

Don't hold us underwater
Don't hold us we can't breathe
And we don't know how to survive
We need hope to escape
And leave no trace
The old life wont find you
The old life defined you

You reach a point and acquiesce
In a place where no-one ever changes
You need a plan to escape
And leave no trace
The old life won't find you
You'll never go on the attack
They'll never go on the attack

Track Name: Broken

I'm standing in the middle of the street
You could know me and I could know you too
But you don't see off to the side
The fleeting cars, the empty hearts

The lonely lines and broken appointment times
The grey face the blackened case the grey road the solitary load
This swirling pace it frightens us away
This filthy street was better yesterday
A man shouts loudly in my face again
Could this just be a signal red for time to end

Track Name: Long Shadows

I know you are more sensitive than most
You cling to this train, like a train to the rails
I know I've been too serious lately
I can't always move in time, but you know I'm trying

And I just try to give in
We are on some season's mescalin
There's a counsellor and a humanitarian
I don't want to see you again

Movement is all I need it doesn't matter at what speed
At this stage all I know is this
You're devastating... and you're my accomplice

We follow an earthly trail that would lead us through
The long shadows that trail the afternoon
Deserts spread out before the moon
The icy clear sky, the book I know you'll write soon

So forget what I mentioned to you
It doesn't matter what we've been through
It's a big roof in a big empty place
With so many prospects in case

Long shadows trail the afternoon
Deserts spread out before the moon
When buried hopes explode in the ground
Go out there now and look for that sound

Movement is all I need it doesn't matter at what speed
At this stage all I know is this
You're devastating...and you're my accomplice
