The vocals on At My Door track amplifies those contrasts, building from the softly vulnerable verses into a full-throated hook.
It's a cathartic way to express lyrics which focus on a relationship with an uncertain status.
"At My Door was written about escapism, a chance encounter with someone significant who takes you to a new place, wanting to return and when you can't, the reflection and understanding of the truth that is staring you right in the face. that you can't go back.
"It was the first song we wrote this year with all of us in the same room, pre-Covid."
Separated from his regular band, he discovered that collaborating on the track remotely was an unorthodox creative method given the live energy that's usually key to their work together.
Like his debut track Start Me Up
, Moy's lyrics in No Talk's The Best Chat
are intriguely offbeat.
It's eloquent, poetic and full of personality, yet it also possesses an ambiguity that opens up new ideas after repeated listens.
The new video came from 2500 hand drawn sketches by the band during lockdown to pass the time.
"We started sketching frames from videos and layering them on top of each other"explains Moy.
"Once we managed to animate a short two second clip which we instantly fell in love with it was a no brainer to have a fully animated video drawn by ourselves.
"It took about a month to get all of it animated, it was literally all we did, it became an addiction.
"Wake up and draw until we couldn't anymore - then pass it over to one of the other band mates to continue!"
So far in his nascent career, Moy has let the music speak for itself.
The Glasgow-based New Zealander has spent recent months writing on acoustic guitar.
It's an approach which adds a subtle lo-fi element to the song's dynamic burst of new wave and groove-orientated indie.
"'No Talk's The Best Chat' can be interpreted in lots of ways," says Moy.
"I personally don't like saying much and the things I want to say don't always need to be said, I prefer expressing myself through music and photos.
"I'd like everyone to have their own interpretation of the song.
"It was written and recorded on the acoustic guitar during the time we have spent in lockdown.
"When you have something new the first thing you want to do is show it to the band and start working out new parts, but we had to approach this differently.
"We recorded the basis of the song and layered some sounds before sending it to our drummer and guitarist, both of who set their parts which they recorded with a minimal set-up.
"It was a strange feeling having their sounds on the song without us all being together."
He previously revealed influences such as The xx, Grimes, John Frusciante and The Voidz, which he expanded on by sharing his Inconstant Moon playlist.
You can hear traces of some of those artists (The 1975, Franc Moody, James Blake) in Moy's sound, but his identity is distinctly his own. That feeling is further accentuated by his visual aesthetics.
