Moby is up to something. Publicists for the veteran dance-music producer have been sending around a new track called “The Light Is Clear In My Eyes” with basically no information. It’s credited to Moby & The Void Pacific Choir, and it’s merely being accompanied by the photo above and a quote from D.H. Lawrence: “California is a queer place — in a way, it has turned its back on the world, and looks into the void Pacific.” The song is a driving postpunk number, and its video is a VHS pileup of cryptic images. As it turns out, Moby and his Void Pacific Choir also have another new song: “Moonlit Sky,” a collaboration with the German tropical house producer Robin Schulz, which sounds like the synth-rock Moby that we’ve come to know so well in the years since Play. Check out both “The Light Is Clear In My Eyes” and “Moonlit Sky” below.
There’s a website for the project here, and it seems likely that we’ll have some idea what’s going on soon enough.
