New York/Vancouver indie dance act Bob Moses is a duo: Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance. Although they went to the same high school in hometown Vancouver, back then they didn’t really hang out together. After graduating, they both separately went to New York to start a music career. New York is a tough place to make it and both of them struggled. Then one day, Howie and Vallance accidentally ran into each other and decided to work on music together. Bob Moses was born!
I chatted with a very tired but friendly Tom and Jimmy in a swank Vancouver hotel Business Centre while the guys waited for their hotel rooms to be ready. (I think they were ready for a pre-show nap.)
Which member of Bob Moses walked out of an orgy? Which Bob Moses track samples an obscure bangra song? What dark secrets do Jimmy and Tom know about each other that not even their girlfriends know? Who showed Bob Moses the Bobby Bland track they eventually covered? What metal bands are the two of them banging their heads to in the studio (when they need a break from electronic music)? How did Tom and Jimmy react when VICE said they sounded like “a tranqued Chris Martin” (from Coldplay)? Why do Jimmy and Tom sometimes hate on rapper G-Eazy? You’ll have to listen to find out!
