Through her delicate indie pop songs, Sabrina Song captures the daily heartbreaks of young adulthood, displaying an innate sensitivity that goes beyond her 23 years of age. The Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and producer has been celebrated for her meticulously crafted tracks that explore relationship dynamics and overcoming self-doubt. Her critically-acclaimed trilogy of EPs—Undone (2019), How's It Going to End? (2020), and When It All Comes Crashing Down (2022)—have been supported by outlets like NYLON, i-D, and Earmilk, while its tracks have found placements in Spotify’s New Music Friday and TIDAL's Rising: Pop playlists. She caught the attention of Phoebe Bridgers with her submission to NPR’s 2021 Tiny Desk Contest, leading the entry to be featured on NPR’s “Top Shelf” series. 2022 proved to be a breakout year for Song, who played a month-long London residency for Sofar Sounds and made her SXSW debut. That summer, she performed at Lollapalooza as a violinist and backing vocalist in Pom Pom Squad’s live band. Finding her voice in plainspoken vulnerability, Song has emerged as a generational voice who works through growing pains to find herself anew on the other side.
