Bob Moses, comprised of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, are pursuing a different project, a body of work titled Desire. Desire, due on August 28, 2020, will contain six continuously mixed tracks and is a “love tale for the digital age,” the pitfalls and positives of our wants and needs of life in a time where technology consumes most of our time.
Kicking off the new project from the duo is the project’s self-titled track “Desire,” featuring the mysterious ZHU. In addition to the new release is an accompanying interactive video which uses anaglyph imagery to display two different sides of desire. Viewers can see the different worlds of pleasure and pain that come with desire, and dives into the ups and downs of our own inner wants.
Speaking about the new project, Bob Moses explained that they “wanted to make something that was continuously mixed, something that would take the listener on a journey and replicate that feeling we try to create when we’re playing our sets in a club.”
“Desire can become quite destructive if you’re not self-aware. With this record, we’re trying to be self-aware by looking at our own desires and reckoning with them. Stories about desire are timeless: Icarus flying too close to the sun and ending up falling to his death…that idea inspired the falling man on the album cover. That symbolized to us how desire can lead to a downfall.”Jimmy Vallance
