Invisible Movement creates a hot and heavy beat that emulates the steam pumping out of Manhattan's street grates at night as its dark aura envelopes the listener as you jam out with his latest single "World of Tomorrow." Invisible Movement began his musical journey in 2017, exploring a style of music that examines a thought or an idea and moves towards a path of self-reflection.
A Spanish overlaid violin plays staccato and legato rhythms interchangeably as the violinist pizzicato's wondrous. Our frontman sings with swag and tranquility. He sings about politically charged themes while contemplating what kind of tomorrow we will have as we live each day in one of the rockiest political and societal landscapes in recent history. As you pause and reflect upon "World of Tomorrow's" lyrics, the drums carry you away with their galloping percussions as the bass hums away in the background. The hooks are invigorating, a call to action, "come on, come on, come on," beckons your body out of your seat, and sways your hips back and forth. There is an indistinctive energy "World of Tomorrow" emulates, and perhaps that's the counterbalance to its darker lyrical approach. Invisible Movement understands how to create balance within his music while generating a moving soundscape that captivates the listener. You are going to want to check this one out, Invisible Movement, as made his mark on "World of Tomorrow."

Hello Invisible Movement, welcome to BuzzMusic. We loved your latest release "World of Tomorrow." Can you start off by removing your invisibility cloak and telling us a bit about the artist behind Invisible Movement?
It's funny you say invisibility cloak because I'm actually a very introverted, private person. For years I've struggled with social anxiety and it's music that helped me come out of my shell and become the person I've wanted to be. I'm not going to lie, it's been a tough journey for me and my artist name is a tribute to that. Invisible Movement is a song by a favorite artist of mine, John Frusciante and his music cut through a lot of the noise and darker times for me and even helped me connect with the love of my life, my longtime girlfriend and best friend, Yeya Millan. I chose the name also because of the meaning I place on it, Invisible Movement to me is this energy that helps push you to pursue what you want and also connects and guides you to help others.
The subject matter really depicts a turbulent and uncertain view of "tomorrow," yet you count that darker tone with energized instrumentals. Do you think our society will be able to find that same kind of balance?
I do. Right now I don't hold a very high opinion of our society and its structures. Every day the rich and powerful corporations take more and more and through media, corruption, and other methods they divide us. Rising inequality and hate, and the destruction of our environment just so they can make millions for themselves? It isn't right and things are starting to change. I believe that people are waking up and seeing the power they are capable of. I believe that if we keep fighting, we can reshape our world for the better.
What about exploring your own thoughts through writing and performing is most satisfying? How would you like to engage those thoughts with your listeners?
There is something about the creative process that is so cathartic because of its expressive nature. My debut album, 'Moments' was a concept album about how we grow as individuals and I really drew from my own experiences to write that. As someone who is just starting to release my own music, I was really struck by how many people resonated with the themes of my music and how many people reached out to me. I'd like to think that there are a lot of people who struggle with anxiety and want to grow beyond that and be the best version of themselves and that's what the albums ultimately about.
What sets the spark to put pen to paper in creating profound lyrical content? Do you ever experience any writer's block and if so how do you redirect to get your thoughts flowing?
I try not to dwell on writer's block when I experience it. If I'm not feeling it, I don't try and force it. For me, writing songs is about reflection and just writing something down, whether you think it's good or not. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not but that doesn't matter. Ultimately, you draw from past ideas and you rework them into your new ideas and the next thing you know you're flowing. It's messy, it's frustrating, but it's also stimulating, and incredibly rewarding. I love it.
What's next for you?
'Mindful' my followup LP to 'Moments'. I'm really excited about this one because I consider it the flip side of the coin to 'Moments'. 'Moments' ends with Leap of Faith and that's symbolic to me. 'Mindful' is ultimately about self-acceptance, becoming other-centered, and I'm especially proud of the songs I've written for this album. It'll sound noticeably different in some great ways and it'll feature some other talented artists that I respect and look up too. I've grown a lot these past two years, as a person and as an artist, and there's still so much more.
