Cookies – “Music For Touching”

In a previous life I worked for a small record label doing webmaster duties and any other odd or end that was needed – be it working a merch table, lights, or plastering promo posters about the City. One of the bands on the label was Mobius Band, a trio who played synth driven indie rock – they, along with label-mate chauncey, were destined for stardom in my rose colored eyes, but alas, like most bands – they faded away after some excellent EP’s and a couple albums.

Ben Sterling, an integral part of Mobius Band, has since moved on to form Cookies – whose apt name takes the pop sensibly of Mobius Band to a sweeter & cleaner level. Gone are the “indie” textures of Mobius, replaced with a crisp sense of confidence on how a pop song should be structured, and Cookies sure know how to structure a pop song, with each note being deliberate and in the perfect place.

The below video for “Music For Touching” was performed live and shot in one take.
