Swedish musician Tobias Arbo announces debut EP Powerlines / Releases nostalgic single ‘Within.’

Mixed by Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, and Sufjan Stevens) Tobias Arbo’s second single, ‘Within’ is highlighted by a delicate finger-picked guitar and Arbo’s nostalgic lyrics. Written through the lens of Tobias’ younger sister, the track addresses the complexities of siblinghood.

Speaking on the lyrical inspiration of the new single ‘Within,’ Tobias said:

“A few years ago, I found a box of video cassettes that my dad had recorded throughout my childhood. I started watching them and was reminded of the cheerful and vibrant child I was. But at the same time, it made me experience a kind of sadness, as memories of the shy and sensitive person that I’d also been clouded the image. During my childhood, I experienced a lot of anxiety, at times having trouble being in school and hanging out with friends. I was five years old at the time my sister was born and it wasn’t until I’d grown up that I started to reflect on how it might have affected her – having an older brother who periodically pulled away.”

Tobias Arbo’s debut EP Powerlines will be released on March 31st via CRC Records. His new single ‘Within’ is out now.
