Movits! are one of those things that people describe with phrases that you think couldn’t possibly be accurate – like “swing jazz big band hip hop fusion” or “Swedish” – but actually get it just right. They’re two tall blonde brothers with Meatpacking haircuts (shaved on the side, long and floppy on top with no fade) and one dark-haired guy who’s a bit more continental and from a less hot distrikt. A playlist of their songs is exactly what you want to put on at your party — peppy but not overwhelming at a volume that you can talk over and completely danceable with a few more clicks.
You know in mainstream teen or twenty-something moves when the characters are at some incredible party that is too grand and coordinated for their social circle and there’s always a live band that’s actually a cameo by a real group like Bishop Allen in Nick and Norah’s? Movits! would be perfect for that. Other than that, these guys are total outliers and don’t fit into any stereotype except every single one about Scandinavians and mine about how socio-economic class and elevation of residence are correlated in oscillations — well-off folks will live at in sea-level towns like Luleå, folks that live in hills and minor mountains like the Blue Ridge and the Smokies are all poor, rich people live in mile-high mountains like in Colorado or the Alps, everyone living higher up in this atmosphere like on Everest or K2 is a poor Sherpa, and then after that, there’s space. There are no poor people in space.
Sometimes, Americans are too close to the culture to understand it:
