GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Bob Moses share their hypnotic new single “Never Ending” and its wildly haunting narrative video — listen HERE and watch the video HERE. 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. Go HERE to pre-order The Silence in Between, due out via Domino Recording Company/Astralwerks on March 4.
A high-energy burst of bittersweet euphoria, “Never Ending” is a prime example of the dazzling complexity within Bob Moses’ musicianship. To that end, 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.”
Directed by Cam Veitch and produced by Black Lake, the video for “Never Ending” unfolds with all the mesmerizing suspense of a surrealist psychodrama. 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.
The third song shared from The Silence in Between, “Never Ending” arrives on the heels of Bob Moses’ recent single “Love Brand New” — a January release that cracked the Top 15 on the Alternative radio chart and earned acclaim from the likes of Billboard (who noted that “the Nine-Inch Nails influenced single is a dark, brooding slow build that pulsates with moody lust, growls power riffs and shows off a heavier sound for the duo”). 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).
Bob Moses’ first body of work since signing to Astralwerks in a unique global partnership with Domino Recording Co., The Silence in Between also includes “Time And Time Again” (a November single accompanied by a spellbinding video). 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.
Soon after the arrival of The Silence in Between, Bob Moses will embark on a headlining tour of North America.
