YEO explores perpetual singledom and abandonment issues on emo R&B track ‘OBSESSION’

Continuing in his R&B experimentations, Yeo releases new single OBSESSION – a subversive track that will leave you unsure of whether to laugh or cry.


 

For those in the know, this song will hit home hard. A song about abandonment issues
and being perpetually single, Yeo drew inspiration from the likes of Weezer, Joji and
Phantom Planet to meticulously craft a soundscape that continues to expand his
chameleon-like sound.

Starting with fresh beats laid over mellow guitars in the verse before feedback-heavy
electric guitars enter in the chorus, OBSESSION takes listeners on a rollercoaster ride
of emotions as Yeo’s unique ‘sadboi’ lyricism takes over.

Bringing us on a complex journey of longing, relationships, mental health and family,
Yeo reminds us that life isn’t always picture perfect and that there doesn’t always
have to be a moral to every story for it to be meaningful.

Never shying away from self-reflection and his cultural identity, last year saw Yeo
performing in a language other than English for the first time, releasing the duet 好好的
過 (Have A Nice Life) with Taiwanese-Australian singer-songwriter Chendy in
Mandarin which was well-received by tastemakers and playlist curators around
South-East Asia.

OBSESSION is the follow up single to U IN? in a handful of singles to be released this
year. Each single is accompanied by a cooking series of Yeo preparing and serving up
his favourite Asian comfort dishes.
