Audion is Dear's dark and dirtiest disguise, and the thematic Op Art covers of color and bold shape enhance the surface area of his original productions. While "I Am the Car" was a slow build that moved like large bubbles rising in a thick swamp, "Look at the Moon" is a pile of fractured samples that are constantly re-arranged. Chunky lasers and sonic shards bounce about against a padded surface. At its peak, the melodic vertigo that Dear conjures so easily is brought full force. While the song is definitely dark, there's an airy spring to the rhythm's step. It's a step forward—moving from his grittier beginnings, and ending up somewhere a bit more smoothed out and rich.
When we're told to look at the moon, there's an expectation that something special will happen when we gaze upwards. As the Audion series continues, we can safely hold the same sort of expectation of Dear.
