Little has been heard from Bob Moses since their smashing 2015 release Days Gone By. Featuring popular singles like “Tearing Me Up” and “Talk,” the duo’s smoldering, ambient house was unlike anything the music world had heard.
Three years later, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance finally have new music for us. They’ve been releasing a steady stream of singles in anticipation of their upcoming album release. The group’s latest: “Enough to Believe,” comes with a fresh, 4-track EP.
Their slinky blend of indie rock and dance floor trance iconized their style over the last two records. Their songwriting skills won them a Grammy for the RAC mix of their 2015 track “Tearing Me Up.”
Their newly released Enough to Believe EP is a continuation of the Canadian group’s breezy, late-night sound. In addition to the title track, it includes their latest two singles and a special extended mix. “Heaven Only Knows” features an aching choral hook that builds into an alt-rock breakdown. The lead single, “Back Down” is an upbeat, steady rally cry.
It’s all in anticipation of their upcoming album: Battle Lines. Bob Moses and Domino Records will release the album on September 14, with a North American tour following shortly after.
“This record is about the battles and struggles we all live through. It’s also about struggling to identify where those battle lines start and end, what within us and within our environments causes these struggles, and ultimately cause our suffering.”
– Bob Moses
