    Starts after first verse pass. Now I know they are moog enthusiasts, I have a manta on the way and I don't remember if a similar sound is achievable??

    That's an actual synth on the record and when the play it live. I'm sure there is a combination of pedals that will get you close, not sure the Manta will do it on its own - but I haven't spent quite enough time with it to say that for sure. The envelope sounds are all there, and you can get that drivey sound out of the Manta as well. I think it'd need a smooth/synthy octave in front of it a la OC-2 at least.
