Alt-rock duo Locations has launched new single “Moves”, a Disco-inspired track that speaks to a period of “resurgence” for the band. With the new track, the duo has also launched 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. The band will be celebrating the new single with a hometown release show on September 5th, 2022, at Mercury Lounge in New York City.
“Moves” was the first song they 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) they had medical benefits. Because tens of millions of Americans are uninsured or underinsured, the band decided to use their latest release to fight for universal healthcare in their home state of New York.
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.
