What could I say? Sobs is the best indie pop band out there. Their newest album has been released on my favorite Topshelf Records. I knew Sobs from the first release and I knew right away this band has a bright future. The new album is just a big proof of that.
“A thirty-minute trip for the post-Internet consumer, Air Guitar calibrates inventive pop hooks for the indie rock lover, instantly accessible yet intricately arranged. The album draws a line through the history of pop stylistics from 80s new wave [Last Resort] and 90s power-pop [Burn Book] to 00s sk8er punk and radio pop [Air Guitar]. Further informed by the cosmopolitan, culturally astute ethos of PC Music – Sobs connects the uptempo of Shibuya’s Advantage Lucy [Lucked Out], heart-on-sleeve indie rock of Bettie Serveert and Big Star [World Implode], with the eclecticism of New York’s Darla Records [Friday Night] to define the pulse of indiepop then and now.”
If you still need a reason to listen to this album, I do not understand you. Just smash the play button and enjoy the best indie pop out there.
I just hope I will see them play a live show in Europe. Hopefully soon…
