About Silver Sphere
Dwelling in the spectrum between dreamy bedroom pop and bubbly electronic pop, Silver Sphere emerged in the late 2010s with a series of self-recorded songs about heartbreak and teen life. Making fans of former bedroom recordists and apparent influences Frankie Cosmos and Clairo, she presented her first album, yikes!, as a college student in 2019.
Sophie Cates, better known as Silver, shared the lush, self-produced breakup song "Darling Don't" under the moniker Silver Sphere in 2017. Continuing to write and record confessional songs with a distinctly youthful point of view in her dorm room at Chicago's Columbia College, she returned with tracks including "drinking games" and "sucks 4 u." They were both included on her debut album, yikes!, when it arrived on Human Re Sources in October 2019.
