Eclectic Norrbotten hip-hop band Movits! take a break from touring Europe to play four exclusive Swedish dates. One of these will be at Malmö Live in January 2019. The concert will take place in our new music venue in Kongressen at Malmö Live!
Over one hundred million streams on Spotify and a decade of touring the world bear witness to the band’s global success. Movits! have long been known as one of Sweden’s best live acts and have been touring non-stop for the past ten years. Summers above all have been a busy time for a band that has become a firm festival favourite, both in Sweden and abroad. This year, Movits! are taking a break from their intensive touring schedule, instead focusing on four Swedish shows. As well as Malmö Live (19 Jan.), the band will be playing Gothenburg (1 Dec.), Stockholm (15 Dec.) and Luleå (22 Dec.).
Movits! have long been renowned for their eclectic music and socially-aware lyrics, always thoughtfully weighted and striking close to home. They are now back, rejuvenated but retaining the same distinct sound as always against a backdrop of brass and heavy beats.
Movits! consists of brothers Johan and Anders Rensfeldt and saxophonist Joakim Nilsson. The band released their debut album Äppelknyckarjazz in 2008 and the following year the Luleå hip-hoppers featured on US TV show The Colbert Report. This proved to be the start of a significant international career, among other things resulting in a world tour in 2015. Movits! are one of those acts working on the margins of Swedish music yet still commanding a large audience both at home and abroad. Autumn 2018 will also see the release of their fifth album.
