Tobias Arbo

"Quaker Gun"

Swedish songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tobias Arbo releases another single from his upcoming album 'Yellow Woods'.

New single 'Spacecraft' is the third of Arbo's sonic offerings this spring. In this intimate piano ballade, he explores the never-enoughness of trying to drench a one-sided love. And warns about the creepyness of collecting your lovers hair. "To me, it’s about feeling how gravity leaves you when someone closest to you suddenly disappears", explains Tobias Arbo. "How your mind keeps looping all those future memories you were going to have over and over, and how draining it is to try to say goodbye to them. I wrote this song in a period of experiencing just that, feeling like there‘s nowhere through and nowhere to go to escape it but outer space."

With 'Spacecraft' Tobias Arbo also announces YELLOW WOODS, his first full length album arriving August 30th.

Album and single were produced together with Linus and Hannes Hasselberg (Plasí, Moonica Mac, Melissa Horn, Cleo), and mixed by Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Owen, Sylvan Esso, Waxahatchee). Artwork and press pictures were created by photographer Olof Grind (Phoebe Bridgers, boygenius, First Aid Kit, Veronica Maggio).

 

While his debut EP POWERLINES, released in March 2023, pondered on the topic of forgiveness to oneself and had Tobias Arbo grapple with the question why he out of all people may deserve to put out music (a nonsensical notion a lot of artists can relate to), this first body of work helped him approach his art more candidly. "I guess it’s part of living, it helped me and it had a lot to do with me and my relationship to music." POWERLINES earned him features in Americana (UK), SVT (Sweden's National TV), GAFFA (Scandinavia's leading entertainment print magazine), Bands of Tomorrow (DK), Nöjesguiden (SE) and more, evoking comparisons to the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver or fellow Swede José González. CLASH found the EP was "blending folk aspects with pop tropes", where "each song feels shot through with light."

'Spacecraft' will be out May 3th 2024 on made records.
