On Thursday night, with support from opening bands “Thao” and “Mirah”, BOBBY brought their unique six piece band sound to the First Unitarian Church in Philly. We’re big fans of Mirah. Their song “Float Away” always seems to find its way onto our playlists. We’d hadn’t had an opportunity to see BOBBY before but we’d had a chance to listen to them and were interested to see how they would translate from our speaker docks to a live venue.
With vocals from Molly Sarle (of Mountain Man) and a wide range of musical influences (including Bjork, Kate Bush, and The Books) it’s hard to categorize BOBBY, but we can say that they are a very talented and enjoyable band (and definitely worth checking out live).
Sure, we could tell you about the show in words, but we thought the best way to introduce you to BOBBY was by stimulating your senses with some of the tracks off of their self titled debut album, and with photos from their live show. We know you’ll enjoy it, we did.
