If you are lucky enough to catch Bob Moses, the Canadian electro duo, then be prepared.
Their latest album Battle Lines is a potent reminder of the power of the combination of hard rhythm, electronic experimentation, and hard-hitting lyrics.
Just to be clear here: pound for pound and track for track, this record is a gem. Thirty seconds into the lead single, “Back Down”, it’s clear that we’re in the safe hands of a duo who understand exactly how to manipulate their audience.
The single reminds us all of why we leave our inhibitions at the door truly for exciting music like this, as it briefly transports us from our mundane present to the promise of a better future. It’s microcosm of the appeal of Battle Lines as a whole: this is versatile, dynamic party music, made by masters of their craft.
