Since releasing her debut EP, ‚Home One Day‘ in 2020 life has changed a lot for
London-raised singer-songwriter SOBI. Adjusting to life as a new mother, and being
confined to her ‚new-born lockdown bubble‘, as she calls it, has given her new
inspiration and the chance to explore different musical narratives, developing on from
the atmospheric, guitar-driven tones of ‚Devil‘ and ‚Pearl‘ from her first record.
„We’re all having to constantly adapt within a changing world, and I find it
overwhelming sometimes. But I have found such comfort in writing songs and I’m so
grateful to have had space to do that in my new-born lockdown bubble. These last few
years have given me the chance to really grow as an artist, and develop new skills. For
the first time I’ve experimented with recording at home and not in a studio.“
Having been a fairly shy child, it was music that really brought SOBI out of her shell
and allowed her to express herself. She began writing and performing her own songs
at the tender age of 16. She initially wrote on the acoustic guitar but after watching
Lianne La Havas perform in a London bar she was inspired to pick up an electric
guitar, giving her emotive, delicate songs a raw and unique edge. SOBI has since gone
on to play several tours (including Jamie Lawson‘s sold out tour as his opening act)
building a name for herself around the UK and Germany and a loyal fanbase.
To mark the release of her debut EP ‚Home One Day‘ SOBI played a sold-out headline
show at LUX, Hannover to an audience of 200. Her single ‚Devil‘ landed in several
independently-curated Spotify playlists including Alexrainbird’s Winter 2020 Indie
playlist, and her single ‚Pearl‘ has accumulated over 200,000 streams on Spotify.
After taking some time to develop her sound, SOBI is now back with her new single
‚When I‘m With You’, a feel-good indie-pop anthem about the joy of spending time
with your favourite person. Inspired by her own experience of becoming a mother,
SOBI describes the feeling of being so connected to another person that you forget
everything else happening around you. Written during lockdown and produced
entirely remotely, by Jan Jakob (SOBI’s guitarist), the song establishes a new facette to
SOBI’s delicate sound, drawing on a wide range of influences from Coldplay to
Khruangbin. This is the first of several new tracks that SOBI will be releasing in 2022,
tackling themes such as grief, loss and falling into the comparison trap.
