One of Asia’s brightest sparks in indie pop, Sobs have inspired cult
followings in the US and Southeast Asia in 2017 with their EP Catflap. On its hit single ‘Girl’, unassuming vocals adorn crisp layers of jangling guitars that embody a kitsch, yet undeniably relatable charm. But as much as Sobs’ songs shimmer with pop immediacy, sombre undertones cloud the buoyant tunes. Frontwoman Celine Autumn’s voice is at once both pastel and haunting as she reminisces on desires and dreams with affecting frankness, drawing comparisons to the likes of Alvvays & Frankie Cosmos.
With the release of Catflap, Sobs quickly caught the attention of tastemakers such as TheLazylazyme and David Dean Burkhart, press like The 405, Indie Shuffle and BIRP!, while remaining on Bandcamp's best-selling charts and picked as a New and Notable release. Spotify curators have also taken notice, adding ‘Girl’ into their Bedroom Pop playlist alongside their contemporaries Clairo, King Krule and Mac DeMarco.
After off a massively successful tour around Southeast Asia featuring the likes of Peach Pit, Mellow Fellow and Sunset Rollercoaster in early 2018,
Sobs set out to venture beyond with Telltale Signs.
