The Confessional Sun, an album dealing with the passing of Brorsson's father, was released in 2014 to rave reviews in both native Sweden and abroad.
In 2017, Stars in Coma put out two brand new full-length albums, following a three-year writing process. In August, the pop-inspired Escapist Partisans was released, while the baroque and folk-styled Defunct Summer saw the light of day in September. The band closed the year with the "2017" single, which was announced to be the artist's last release for a while.
US indie music site Obscure Sound has called the band’s sound a mixture between “ABBA’s orchestra-laden and punchy pop to the idiosyncrasies of contemporary Swedish songwriters, like Jens Lekman and Eric Berglund,” while INDIE30 called Stars in Coma "guitar pop at its finest."
