After years of experimenting with different songs and struggling to find a clear direction for the album, it was the music to “Möbius Man” that really defined the album I wanted to make. Once I recorded this song, I knew how I wanted the album to sound and in turn, what I needed to do.
Once again there is a strong contrast between the dark, edgy sounding verse and sweet, melancholic chorus. I particularly like the musical tension in the verse and the characterful bassline – channelling the vibe of The Beatles “Come Together” in a dystopian electronica kind of way. The chorus feels a little Pet Shop Boys to me, possibly because it uses one of their favoured chord progressions.
