Moby - One Time We Lived
Label: Little Idiot
Format: CDS


Fabulous early 80's electro pop-influenced new single from Moby

Moby's latest single shows the diminutive muso is still very much reliving the electro pop of the early 80's. If the last single 'Mistake' was a nod to early Joy Division, 'One Time We Lived' pays tribute to Bowie, the Thompson Twins and others with its slick synth and multi tracked vocals. Vocally there is a distinct Morten Harket of A-Ha fame tremor. Moby sings and a very mechanical voices repeats his words in something little more than a whisper. It lends a very eerie, almost other worldly atmosphere to the track. And there isn't so much a chorus as the repeated refrain of "Isn't that what we wanted?/ Isn't that what we had?/Do we know what we need now that's it's gone?" and it does get stuck in your head straight away. If anything at 3 and a half minutes it feels too short,
