Ana Lee here with my DJ pick of the week from Bob Moses, the Vancouver-bred duo consisting of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance. They recently released a new track called “Heaven Only Knows.”
The duo came to life in the Brooklyn underground scene in 2012. Early single releases on taste-making electronic label Scissor & Thread led to signing with Domino and the late 2015 release of their debut album Days Gone By.
Meshing guitar licks, a moody smolder and a dash of dance-floor ambience with lyrical depth and classic songwriting, the duo created a sound that appeals equally to club goers and rock music fans. Translating their sound seamlessly to the live performance realm, years of nonstop global touring – including appearances at every major festival from Glastonbury and Coachella, to EDC, Lollapalooza and beyond – cemented the duo’s reputation as a must see live act. A standout performance on The Ellen Show, a pair of nominations at both the Junos and the Grammys (and a Grammy win), and a top 15 US Alternative radio hit with “Tearing Me Up,” have further sealed the band’s burgeoning mainstream success.
May 2018 saw the announcement of a headline US tour and the release of this new single. Give “Heaven Only Knows” a listen and let us know what you think!
