Following on from the release of their much-loved 2018 LP 'Battle Lines', Bob Moses have returned to announce the details behind their next full-length release.
The new collection 'Desire' has been described as "a concept record for the club", is being previewed by the new title-track collaboration alongside Grammy-nominated electronic musician ZHU, and is set to be released on the 28th August via Domino Recordings.
Speaking about their new work, the band's Jimmy Vallance said, “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 symbolised to us how desire can lead to a downfall.”
While bandmate Tom Howie added, “We’ve appreciated the worlds created in concept records from bands like Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails. We thought it would be interesting to combine that kind of songwriting with the flow of modern electronic music.”
