Asserting artistic and creative control through a sound that’s thematically awkward and unsure seems like a bit of a contradiction, yet local dream pop trio Sobs has unquestionably found its sweet-spot within this incongruity. Easing off the genre’s obsession with reverb and working in time signatures that elevate their hazy lo-fi charm rather than distracting from it, vocalist Celine Autumn, guitarist Jared Lim and guitarist Raphael Ong’s debut EP, Catflap, strays from convention while satisfying listeners firmly invested in the twee pop signature.
Joining us in the studio with GRYD for the latest edition of JUICE Sessions, the trio doubles-up on its personnel to put on enchanting performances of “Girl” and “Catflap” from their debut, as well as the previously unreleased “Party Song”. Get dreaming with the video playlist below.
