Mobius Band short circuits keyboards, lands album in Hank

mobiusband_heaven_350.jpg

The Mobius Band are set to release their new album “Heaven” and after listening to it – it’s the far and away the best work I have heard from them. I can’t tell you how amazing this record is, beyond that – instrumental versions are also available of all the new songs!! The album is poppy, experimental and is laden with amazing hooks and swells. One of the most unique sounds is the sound that they played with on this album – short circuiting keyboards. Hard to explain, great to listen to – check it out.
