Sour Widows

Bay Area-based trio Sour Widows was formed in 2017 by Maia Sinaiko, Susanna Thomson, and Max Edelman. All three had been close since meeting in various phases of childhood, and when they found themselves living in the same area, making music together came naturally. With a musical connection that was an extension of their longtime friendship, the band began fine-tuning a sound that swung from gently glowing harmonizing to energetic bursts of feedback-laced catharsis.

With their ‘Crossing Over’ EP—described by Pitchfork as “wielding raw vulnerability like a superpower”—Sour Widows discovered a new intensity by turning inward. The record dialed back some of the volume that drove their self-titled 2020 debut to make space for themes of self-reflection and painful change that cut through with sharpened clarity. The luminous vocal harmonies, complex guitar interplay, and understated drumming that have been at the core of the band’s sound remained foundational; but these four songs reached deeper, all the more stirring in their subtlety. ‘Crossing Over’ represents a new phase of the band’s artistry, and points to even further growth with their soon-to-follow full length debut.

Sour Widows have kept busy over the past couple of years supporting bands like Duster, Surf Curse, Snail Mail, Pile, and SPELLLING at home and across the country. Most recently, the band has released the explosive and sprawling singles “Witness” and “I-90” to critical acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, Stereogum, and more—offering audiences a preview of what’s in store for 2024 and beyond.
