After breaking their silence a couple months ago with single “Heaven Only Knows,” duo Bob Moses is back to deliver more chilled out electronic pop in the form of the stunning track called “Back Down.” Much like the rest of the catalog, “Back Down” displays the genius fusion of alternative and trance that Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance create together. They manage to have this extravagant sound filled with emotion, yet are able to keep control and keep it cool.
The duo explains the new album as being “about the battles and struggles we all live through—battles within ourselves, battles with and within our society, battles between each other, with our loved ones, battles between ideologies. It’s also about struggling to identify where those battles lines start and end, and what within us and within our environments cause these struggles, and ultimately cause our suffering. It’s also about the struggle to reconcile with those things, somehow.”
Both “Back Down” and “Heaven Only Knows” will appear on the forthcoming Bob Moses album Battle Lines. Look for its release September 14th via Domino Records. The duo will also be touring North America this fall, for shows and pre-order Battle Lines from the Bob Moses website.
