Art Moore is the musical project of Taylor Vick (Boy Scout) and Ezra Furman collaborators Sam Durkes and Trevor Brooks. The trio's new single, "Muscle Memory," has a very distinct folk-like feel, if folk can be awash in synths. Typically I would never call any song with this many synths anything resembling folk, but "Muscle Memory" has a surprisingly organic feel to it even without relying on string instruments. It's a quiet, personal sounding song that is still somehow a mini-epic in size.
Taylor Vick talks about the band's new single:
"Muscle Memory was inspired by the many phases of life we go through and the friendships that exist within them that inevitably transform as we continue through life. I wanted to write about this experience from a neutral perspective, one with the belief that it’s neither a good or bad thing but simply a given in life. It’s a more fictionalized version of my personal experience which was the kind of writing I gravitated towards most in this band."
