—GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Bob Moses have announced the upcoming release of their highly anticipated third album, The Silence in Between — due out March 4, The Silence in Between will mark the Los Angeles-based band’s first release since signing to Astralwerks in a unique global partnership with Domino Recording Co. In celebration of the album announcement, Bob Moses have also shared their exhilarating new single “Love Brand New.”
One of the most anthemic moments on The Silence in Between, “Love Brand New” finds Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance tapping into their deep-rooted love for ’90s alt-rock and left-of-center dance music. 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 track encompasses a glorious collision of moody guitar tones, mercurial textures, and wildly propulsive beats as Bob Moses channel the dizzying euphoria of new romance.
“‘Love Brand New’ is about being newly in love and trying not to lose yourself as you navigate the world feeling as though you're seeing everything for the first time, as if it's brand new,” Bob Moses reveal. “It was written with our friends Michel Zitron and John Martin and started in L.A. just before Coachella in 2019. We knew there was something there, but touring intervened. We finally got back to it in 2020, and it became one of the first finished for our new album. We shot the video in a freezing warehouse in Montreal this past December — we look warm though.”
Directed by photographer/director Adrian Villagomez and Derek Branscombe, the video for “Love Brand New” unfolds as Bob Moses deliver a frenetic performance within that warehouse, fully embodying the track’s explosive vitality. Meanwhile, the intimately shot visual cycles through a series of tender vignettes featuring an eclectic cast of characters from all walks of life. The result is a gorgeously cinematic piece, at turns electrifying and profoundly moving.
