Bobcat Rob is a songwriter and performer based in California whose husky vocal delivery and lofi, folk-Americana aesthetic might remind you of a cross between Andy Shauf and Jeff Tweedy. His latest track "Popcorn Lung" weaves together big instrumental hooks with a shimmering guitar tone and captivating lyrics.
The sound Bob has been cultivating lately is something he likes to call 'Surf Country.' Bringing together elements of psychedelic guitar, wash-out keyboard riffs, and lush harmonies with a solid rhythm section, the vibe here is loud and rocking, with a healthy dose of twang. Building on the success of 2018’s A Different Horse, recorded at Sonoma County’s Prairie Sun Recording Studio, Bob's upcoming release with the Nightly Howl explores the boundary between alt-country and roots-pop, with a lyrical style that feels both deeply contemplative and subtly kittenish.
