In time for his second North American headline tour, acclaimed Brisbane producer Odd Mob releases a hypnotic new track ‘Bad Moon’, on Tinted Records. Contrasting clean pop elements with glitchy production, the track successfully curates a captivating soundscape. Further complementing the track are compelling lyrics courtesy of US singer-songwriter Kameron Alexander, who is known for his work on Illenium’s ‘Pray’, Alan Walker & A$AP Rocky’s ‘Live Fast’, and a collaborator on Peking Duk records.
Discussing how the song was shaped with newly learnt production techniques, Odd Mob explains, “‘Bad Moon’ really represents the evolution of my music. The lush spacey elements were made to really take you to another place. The track has a lot of elements that I have only just learned how to create over the past year. The whole imagery of the song could best be described as dancing under a full moon on a brightly lit night”.
The profound anatomy behind the lyrics prove Kameron’s songwriting talents, by drawing parallels between the struggle to escape feelings and the moon. Kameron reflects, “I’ve always felt like the moon has a great deal to do with every form that the creative process may take. This song is about a waxing and waning relationship that’s experiencing difficult daily circumstances. Circumstances are simply difficult sometimes, in these moments, seeing things eye-to-eye may feel impossible, but with a little will power (“supercharged” from the moon’s energy perhaps in this case) one can power through the rough until the next moon cycle.”
