New York alt-rock duo Locations sought band name inspiration from their day jobs. They work as location scouts, tasked with taking in every street corner and block in The Big Apple in granular detail, on the lookout for any latent architectural wonders, incidental pockets of enchantment, or curious conceptual designs – anything with the potential to pique interest, and an essential facet of TV and film production. And, on new single “Moves”, they harness this very love for their city, but rather than its buildings, its residents are the focus.

Sonically, the kinetic “Moves” – an invitation to dance – could spur on the most reluctant movers. However, its movement of a political kind ultimately endeavours to inspire. After one of the members experienced a major health event, leading them to be out of action for a period, the already politically minded, anti-corruption and climate-conscious group acquired a newfound tangible appreciation of the need for free health care provision as a human right.

The track takes on new meaning, a celebration of movement and a call for equal access to the care required to support everyone to remain their mobile, healthy selves. Standing in support of The New York Health Act, revolutionary legislation that would guarantee universal coverage in New York, “Moves” is the band’s musically infectious contribution to the fight.

Who better to recruit to star in the video than the very people at the heart of the campaign, the residents of New York?
