Alternative/Alt. Rock, Indie, Pop

The Movies make melodic alt-pop songs with poetic lyrics. Hailing from Southeastern Minnesota, the founding members of the band are Mike Larson and Pete Tellijohn. Larson is the lead singer and songwriter, and Tellijohn is a multi-talented instrumentalist and arranger/producer. Their first release, Nothin's on Its Way, was well-received critically but did not get much exposure. They added bassist Jason Tako for the recording of their second release, Sway--a moody, engaging collection of eight songs that make you feel all those things you cannot name. In 2019, the band released the catchy "Blue Carnival" as a single.
