com: After opening for artists like the National, Cut Copy and Matthew Dear as part of Mobius Band, Sterling forged his own path and spent a half-decade writing what eventually became "Music For Touching.
And when it comes to lyrics, Sterling is as likely to look to Jenny Holzer’s Truisms series as to Bob Dylan. Dance music and good songs don’t always go together, but I’m just trying to ram different ideas into each other, explains Sterling, who wrote, produced and created the majority of the sounds on Music For Touching. The song ‘Katharine’ starts out vaguely Bollywood, but in the middle the instrumentation turns it into a rock song.
