Molding cultured synth-pop and darkwave ambience, the Canadian band Moev first came together in 1981 when Vancouver natives Tom Ferris and Cal Stephenson were seeking a motivated electronic sound. They weren't concerned with heavy punk elements, and classic rock riffs. The were leaning on the secretive new wave beauty of spiraling guitars and dramatic keyboards. It wasn't long that vocalist Madeleine Morris and guitarist Mark Jowett joined Moev to make the unit a solid four-piece.

Jowett and Moev manager Terry McBride founded Nettwerk in 1984 so that Moev's material could be honestly and sufficiently released. Several singles were later issued, and also during this time, Morris left the band and Stephenson assumed full-time vocal duties. Michella Arrichiello stepped in a year later to become co-lead vocalist alongside Stephenson, and Moev signed a deal with Profile Records. Their sophomore effort Dusk and Desire was released to critical acclaim in North America in December 1985, yet a shift in band members continued to riddle Moev of complete creative concentration.
