((Mobius Band)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Brooklyn's Mobius Band rocks the electro-pop rock similar to The Postal Service, with a spoonful of that wacky "wall-of-sound" wonderment courtesy of merry old England (circa 1991, to be precise). And while Mobius Band may not be, like Gibbard, stalwarts on the Starbucks playlist just quite yet, they certainly have that all-accessible sound that even soccer moms with frosted blonde highlights and drawers full of Christmas tree sweatshirts can enjoy (when they're feeling "frisky" that is).

Unlike a lot of bands that "just want to rock," it's obvious that these guys are also concerned with texture, structure, and dynamics, and pay close attention to the art of songcraft. But they aren't so bogged down by technicalities that they still can't let it rip. Mobius Band incorporate driving guitars and particularly strong percussion with well-placed synth and blip strokes. Sure they're poppy, but perhaps not poppy enough to accompany your poppy muffin at a chain cafe.
