Sour Widows are a bedroom rock group from the Bay Area, formed in 2018 by longtime friends Maia Sinaiko, Susanna Thomson and Max Edelman.
Songs marked by driving harmonies address themes of relationship and reflection; layers of warmth, grit, and depth surface and fade in their two guitar dynamic. 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.
Carried by Edelman’s inimitable drumming, the three draw from influences including Big Thief, Duster, Pile and Forth Wanderers to create heavy harmonic alternative rock. Post-Trash calls their debut single ‘Tommy’ “a perfect synthesis of slacker pop and punk’s tamer edges,” and asserts the band “is slated to blow up the indie scene.” 

Through progressions that shift from subtle to biting, Sour Widows expose tender moments with an edge.
