The Soul Movers blast off again, this time on a classic-disco spacecraft with a sparkling remix of last year's lockdown soul-lifter "Circles Baby".
One of the fiery new tracks, and sizzling video clip featuring the OG Wiggles and dancers, from their new album "Evolution"
- their third for ABC Music -
Led by long-legged Lizzie Mack, a charismatic tambourine-wielding frontwoman with a penchant for groovy 1960’s vintage threads, and featuring the equally visually spectacular and loved legend of a generation, ex-Red Wiggle, Murray Cook, The Soul Movers tour-de-force musical offering across a hip and funky musical spectrum has made them one of the most exciting live show and festival acts on the touring circuit today.
Backed by a band oozing with musical talent, The Soul Movers have recorded in both the US and Australia to create four critically-acclaimed albums which are regularly presented with humour and passion on many of Australia’s biggest festivals and most-loved festivals.
The Soul Movers revised tour across key Australian venues and festivals (including some SUPER exciting ones that we can't drop yet!) now starts Saturday August 7 and continues through March 7 2022 as the band blases their latest release ‘Evolution’ returning to much-loved live venues where OG Wiggles fans flock to see Murray ‘shred’.
Soon to launch is the YouTube Exclusive video series ‘Murray’s Music Mates’, with first cab off the block dropping in early JULY. MMM will feature interviews with many of Australia’s well known faces as well as some up and coming young bands as they support live shows and collaborate with Murray. Whatever The Soul Movers are up to you can bet one thing; it’s going to be retro, rockin’ and FUN.
Fun fact: The first live band Murray Cook ever saw (at the Amoco Hall in Orange, NSW) was Sherbet!... Who on earth could predict that thirty-five years later, he would be writing an album with two of those same original members (Garth and Tony) the musicians he first saw rocking out on that big, sparkling stage?
(2021 also being the year The Wiggles celebrate their 30th Anniversary!)
Enjoy the "OG" music video for “Hot Sauce” here - fuel-injected with "OG Wiggley" goodness and the coolest "big red car" - adding a shot of Sherbet zing.
A spicy summer electro-disco banger straight out of the 1970s.
Whether you take it poolside or on a pulsing dance floor, prefer the original "Garth Porter" (Sherbet) mix or the "GEM" remix - both tracks have the perfect balance of salty, lime, and spicy salsa - an unstoppable four-on-the-floor
retro-beat you were chasing!
For the "Hot Sauce" GEM re-mix video we have pulled together one of the superstars of our last year's retro Workout Video: “Circles Baby”.
You'll see sensational Holly McGlinchy (AKA blue leotard) become "Rollerwoman" for the magical re-mix by LA-based producer Gem McCormack, daughter of country music legend Rod, who grew up watching The Wiggles and seeing “Uncle Garth” Porter playing guitar around the house with her Dad!
With a ton of silver glitter, and a pumping bass line by Hollywood Hills bass-man "Luxxury" this RE-mix is set to blow up dance-floors the minute folks can pull on some platforms and hit them once again.
In the meantime, funk it up anywhere, time or place you choose!
Need a workout? Get retro with..."Circles Baby"
Fronted by the dynamic Lizzie Mack and her brother in Soul, ex-Red Wiggle Murray Cook, The Soul Movers join forces with the Original Wiggles dancers, and of course, Greg, Jeff, and Anthony, to focus on moving BODIES along with Souls. As the world faces a battle that can only be fought with one, higher power... that of funky DISCO!! "Circles Baby" is designed to get bodies moving and souls UP-lifted!
With a tasty mix of heart-warming retro' soul and funky disco, this workout track - and music clip of the century - combines the power and passion of Greg Page, as Richard Simmons; the man who uplifted a generation of people to become their better selves. Well, it's time to rise up again folks - in the battle against the curve! :)
Stay tuned for more from The Soul Movers come October 9 when their new album "Evolution" hits the stores...
Ever seen a live Soul Movers show...?
Glenn A. Baker captures The Soul Movers' festival set perfectly:
"The Soul Movers have become even more road-hardened since returning from their US adventures. The evidence was on display today at the Newtown Festival, where they delivered a cracking 40-minute set that blew everyone away. In fact, the mosh pit became so animated that it was almost lethal!
Murray Cook and Lizzie Mack have forged an alliance so powerful, so fearsomely funky, that The Soul Movers have become one of the most exciting live bands in the land..."
"Experiencing the Soul Movers live is an essential experience for anyone seriously interested in that broad umbrella of "live music."
Bernie Howitt, RAM Magazine
