In case you missed it, last week Philadelphia’s electro-rock powerhouse Tweed released a new music video for their song “Moves” with entertaining style. The band puts on a colorful display of 80s-themed jazzercise and old-school fitness in their Wes Anderson-esqe compilation. Driven by an undeniable groove of thick bass, smooth vocals, and electrifying melody, the song is something you can kick back with or dance to.

We have been fans of Tweed’s music for years as well as their music and arts festival SENSORiUM which serves as a taste maker for Philadelphia talent.

Tweed cites hometown heroes The Disco Biscuits and Lotus as inspiration, but their music draws from indie rock, electronica, and disco–think Phoenix meets Daft Punk. Having recently added violinist and multi-instrumentalist, Charlie Field, to the band, you can expect something unique from this lineup as the band prepares to release their debut full-length.

“The song was a collaboration since its inception,” notes Tweed drummer, Joe Vela. “From writing in a cabin we rented in North Carolina while on tour, producing with Jeff “Mud” Mahajan and Jesse Miller of Lotus in the studio, to designing the film shoot with our director, Nicholas J Piser, and the help from our film team who made it happen, it was a big team effort.

“Moves,” the single for the video, is out now on all streaming platforms and will be featured on Tweed’s debut full-length of the same name expected before the end of 2019. Having already performed at Camp Bisco, Peach Festival, Beardfest, and their hometown curated SENSORiUM Festival, the band has their eyes set on a big 2020.
