"My Bloody Valentine", "Ride", "Slowdive", "Radiohead",
"Massive Attack", "Sigur Ros".

of the abovementioned bands. The musicians themselves define
their style as something between shoegaze and hippynoise.

dreaming and gentle agression.

radio stations and very soon it became Hit No.1 on the
Latvian Alternative Radio "Naba". According to the social
voting it was admitted as the best single of the year 2004.

the leading festivals of Latvian bands. "The Movies" participate
actively in club concerts throughout Latvia. Their music and
