Canadian electronic duo Bob Moses gives us a little taste from their upcoming album ‘The Silence In Between’ with a new single and music video ‘Never Ending’, album out out via Domino Recording Company/Astralwerks on March 4.
A radiant meditation on desire and the unrelenting passage of time, “Never Ending” is the latest song released from the Los Angeles-based band’s highly awaited third album The Silence in Between.
The track seamlessly merges its elegantly simple melodies with more off-kilter and unexpected elements (dusty house beats, jagged stabs of synth). Lyrically, Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance document a moment of ephemeral bliss and the intense longing that comes with it (from the chorus: “I wanna live like this is never ending”). “We have all had moments we wanted to stay in forever,” Bob Moses state. “This song indulges the impulse and revels in that possibility.”
Through its ingenious use of multiple exposures and feverishly repeated shots, the visual creates a brilliantly disorienting effect as it follows an enigmatic couple through their darkly charmed world. Captured in the dreamy haze of fast-fading memory, “Never Ending” ultimately conjures a lovely delirium with its mystifying whirlwind of images: shattered glasses of red wine, smashed flowers, ominously spinning mirrorballs, a particularly foreboding tarot card.
One of many exciting collaborations featured on The Silence in Between, “Love Brand New” was co-written with Michel Zitron and John Martin (a Swedish production duo known for their work with the likes of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia).
The album follows Bob Moses’ JUNO Award-nominated 2020 project Desire, and marks their first full-length since Battle Lines (a 2018 effort featuring the hit single “Back Down”). The duo’s past efforts also include their 2015 debut album Days Gone By, featuring such standouts as “Tearing Me Up” — a Top 15 US Alternative radio hit nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards, with a remix from RAC winning in the category of Best Remix Recording (Non-Classical). As their boldest and most viscerally charged output to date, The Silence in Between amplifies the unbridled energy that’s made Bob Moses a repeat winner of Resident Advisor’s Best Live Act prize.
Tour kicking off on March 20 in Tucson, Arizona, the 25-date run will continue through May 21 in Vancouver, with stops at such iconic venues as The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and The Warfield in San Francisco. Later this year, Bob Moses will head overseas for tour dates at Melkweg in Amsterdam and KOKO in London.
