Bob Moses Performs “Nothing But You” at Coachella 2019
- Canadian electronic duo Bob Moses, consisting of Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie, appeared on Coachella 2019 on April 13th, where the band performed “Nothing But You”.
The song is included on their sophomore album “Battle Lines”, which was released back in September 2018.
Tom Howie told Billboard about the song, “Nothing But You" was an ease at first and then a tough challenge. The chorus came to me in a dream, fully formed, and I woke up at like 4 in the morning to work it out on the piano, half asleep. The verse and basic song structure followed quite easily. It took us a few attempts at producing it. We couldn’t seem to get it right at first, but finally, we got it right. We wrote about six different sets of verse-lyrics all centered around the chorus. At one point, we worked for seven full days in a row and ended up scrapping everything. Jimmy had an unfortunate event occur in his family that ended up being the inspiration for us to get the lyrics right, and once we started with that in mind, it clicked in one day. Funny how sometimes writing works best as catharsis. It’s about thinking that what you want is somewhere else, and then realizing that it was right in front of you all along once it’s too late. ”
