Watch: Bob Moses lights up daytime television with performance of ‘Back Down’ on ‘Ellen’

The alternative electro-rock duo known as Bob Moses were at the “Ellen” studios in Los Angeles recently to perform “Back Down,” one of the ethereal singles from their recently released sophomore album, Battle Lines. Their pre-filmed appearance on the popular daytime talk-show on Monday comes about a week into the band’s North American fall tour in support of said album, and by the sound of the performance, they’re already hitting their stride in playing the new material live.

Pro-shot video of the performance of the dance-friendly single can be watched below and sounds pretty good even compared the studio version heard above. The two principal members guitarist Jimmy Vallance and keyboardist Tom Howie seem to be sticking with their trademark all-black look into this new album cycle, and their ability to pump out smooth, lo-fi rock tracks hasn’t gone anywhere either. The band has quite the expectations set up for themselves with the new music following their successful 2015 debut. With a few years of big league road experience behind them at this point, Bob Moses are firmly establishing themselves as solid indie-hitmakers in an over-populated synth-rock movement at the moment.

“It’s been a whirlwind of a year in the studio,” the band said back in the summer about their new album. “We’re bringing loads of new music on the road.”

That road tour continues tomorrow night with a show at The Waiting Room in Omaha, Nebraska. Bob Moses will remain on tour performing across North America throughout the rest of October and into November before their fall trek closes out on Nov. 16 in Los Angeles. They’re also scheduled to head down to Mexico City for a Nov. 2 performance at  Auditorio Blackberry.
