It can be somewhat difficult to describe Austin-based Mobley’s sound. It’s funky, it’s poppy, it has an ’80s new wave feel to it, but mostly it’s just plain good. With their brand new album, Young Adult Fiction, the band creates a sound that is led by frontman Anthony Watkins’ raw energy and passion. He may not be Stevie Wonder, but the passion in his voice is what makes Mobley’s sound so infectious. You can check out “Torch” on our October Spotify Playlist and watch the video below for “Ego Is” to witness that raw energy and passion that I was talking about, we guarantee you’ll be hooked.
Mobley will be taking the stage at Arlene’s on Thursday October 18 as part of our CMJ showcase with Young Giant Records so make sure to swing by to catch these guys live.
