Movements formed in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., in 2015 as an offshoot of a high school garage band. That same year, it was signed to a record label after performing just a single concert as the opening act for the band Have Mercy. Just prior to that, the band released its debut single, "Protection." Immediately following its debut performance, Movements released its follow-up single, "Buried," followed by "Scripted," its third single, one month later. In 2016, Movements released its debut record, an extended play called Outgrown Things. It reached No. 42 on the US Indie chart and No. 11 on the US Heatseekers chart. This was followed by a tour with Real Friends that played unusual venues like skateparks and bowling alleys.
Movements released its debut album, Feel Something, in 2017. It reached No. 190 on the US Billboard chart, No. 34 on US Rock chart, No. 21 on the US Alternative chart, No. 17 on the US Vinyl chart and No. 2 on the US Heatseekers chart. Thanks to the success of this release, Movements itself hit No. 23 on the Emerging Artists chart. Also in 2017, Movements was nominated for the Alternative Press Music Award for Best Underground Band.
