Bob Moses divulges details on debut album, ‘Days Gone By’
As underground dance music continues to popularize among millenials, brighter spotlights are inevitably shone on its respective artists. Canadian live act, Bob Moses, falls under this category as a duo that embodies the acme of “pop-savvy” songwriting and the underground.
With two EPs under their belt since joining forces in early 2011, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance sat down with Billboard to discuss the details surrounding their debut album, Days Gone By. Slated for a September 18 release date on Domino Records, Tom refers to their first major project as “quite dark.” Much like their first singles “Too Much Is Never Enough” and “Talk,” the album plans to embrace “melancholy with a sense of hope:”
“The chorus of the title track is all about learning lessons. There’s a bunch of remorse, and a bunch of nostalgia. It’s sort of a snapshot of what we were both going through at the time, in our personal lives, together and separately. We wanted to write about topics that were meaningful to us but also overarching subjects of life that could happen to anybody.”
Jimmy goes on to describe Days Gone By as sociable, but also lonely. The album will share stories about their lives and communicate what it feels like to be the “black sheep” in the scene, traversing a myriad of sounds and styles to solidify their underlying message.
