After three years of wood-shedding in the pine forests of Shutesbury, Massachusetts, electronic rock trio Mobius Band has traded up: from shoe-string home recording to Peter Katis's Tarquin Studios (Interpol, Rainer Maria); from rural Massachusetts to Brooklyn (two-thirds of the band anyway); and from their own label to Ghostly International.
These changes follow the band's gradual evolution over the course of three self-released EPs, from exploratory composers of instrumental suites to crafters of gracefully intricate pop gems. The band's trademark sound combines loose guitars, delicate vocals and hard-hitting drums with tightly-wound electronics. Their songs are filled with mournful refrains and unexpected textures, accented by soaring guitar lines and an uncanny cinematic sense.
Mobius Band debuted on Ghostly with the critically-acclaimed City Vs Country EP in Spring 2005 and will release the full-length The Loving Sounds of Static before the summer's end.
