Check out the sweet and sour harmonies on the new Sour Widows EP, out today.
Sour Widows are a bedroom rock group from the Bay Area formed in 2018 by longtime friends Maia Sinaiko, Susanna Thomson, and Max Edelman, and recently joined by Sam Edelman on bass. Their songs are marked by driving harmonies and address themes of relationship and reflection; layers of warmth, grit, and depth surface and fade in their two-guitar dynamic.
Carried by Edelman’s inimitable drumming, the four draw from influences including Big Thief, Duster, Pile, and Forth Wanderers to create heavy, harmonic alternative rock. The term ‘bedroom rock’ is a nod to this intimacy—it could mean sleepy, dreamy, or weepy—as it captures the emotion behind the music.
Through progressions that shift from subtle to biting, Sour Widows expose tender moments with an edge.
