The previous two singles from Art Moore (the new band featuring Taylor Vick of Boy Scouts and Sam Duerkes and Trevor Brooks of Ezra Furman's band) have had this unique sound that is folk-like but far too electronic to be fully folk. Their latest single dives even deeper into the world of synths and electronic music. "A Different Life" is much more of a pop song, albeit an alt-pop one. It's a song that is dripping with both sadness and optimism, as it's about heartbreak and the open world of possibilities that come after a break up.
Taylor Vick says of the new song:
"'A Different Life' was inspired by the experience of daydreaming up another version of your life. I can easily get caught up in the imaginary worlds in my head, overwhelmed by the endless possibilities and versions of me that exist within them. But I am most fascinated by the version just parallel to this one, the one with only a few differences or enhancements. This song is about the experience of longing for that not so far off possibility."
