Sour Widows

Indie trio Sour Widows are HOT🔥 following the release of their ‘Crossing Over’ EP, which has received support from indie tastemakers NPR and Pitchfork. Since the EP dropped, the band’s Spotify popularity score has grown by 5 points (28%), with tracks in the 750k follower, cross-genre Fresh Finds playlist.

Watch the music video for 'Bathroom Stall':

Bay Area trio Sour Widows already drew as equally on sharpness as they did tenderness, but the deliberately spare atmosphere of their new EP Crossing Over enhances both. Recorded remotely by the band while plans for getting into a studio were put on indefinite hold, these four songs dial back some of the volume that drove their self-titled 2020 debut, making space for themes of self-reflection and painful change that cut through with sharpened clarity. Tempos slow and the instrumentation softens, but anxiety and grief crackle in even the most deceptively delicate moments.
