Alt-rock duo LOCATIONS have released their new single, “MOVES” today. The funky, disco-inspired track serves as an anthem for celebrating individuality, renewal, and of course, dancing. Listen to it now below.
The track is released in conjunction with a fundraiser in support of the Campaign for NY Health, a statewide coalition dedicated to passing and implementing legislation for guaranteed, universal, single-payer healthcare in New York State. Limited edition t-shirts are available for purchase HERE, with all proceeds directly benefitting Campaign for NY Health.
“MOVES” was the first song LOCATIONS wrote after one of the band members recovered from a major medical event that put the band on hold for several months. Thanks to good union jobs (both band members are Teamsters Local 817 Location Scouts) Tom and Niko have the medical benefits that everyone deserves. Unfortunately, tens of millions of Americans are uninsured or underinsured. So the band decided to use their latest release to fight for universal healthcare in their home state of New York.
Of the song and the fundraiser, the duo said, “We’re hoping to focus the positivity and energy of ‘MOVES’ to support the Campaign for NY Health and make Universal Healthcare a reality for all New Yorkers. HEALTHCARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT and we hope the song will move our fans to use their power, time, money, and voices.”
LOCATIONS encourages everyone to take action now. Sign up for the campaign, volunteer your time, call your representatives every week, and help guarantee access to healthcare as a right for every person, starting with the great state of New York.
The band will be celebrating the new single with a hometown release show on September 5th at Mercury Lounge in New York City. For more information, click HERE.
