Sour Widows – “Tommy”

“Tommy” is the debut single from Bay Area rockers Sour Widows. Comprised of longtime friends Maia Sinaiko, Susanna Thomson, and Max Edelman, Sour Widows cite alt-rock influences such as Big Thief, Pile, Duster, Angel Olsen, and Forth Wanderers. Such is evident on the impressive “Tommy,” which builds from nonchalant garage-rock into an escalating, melodic fervor. The track’s four minutes do well in showing the band’s songwriting strengths, particularly the ability to develop a rockin’ track with enjoyable melodic and structural variety. I’m looking forward to the band’s next single “Pilot Light,” out on 9/13, in addition to a self-titled debut EP later this year.

“Tommy” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2019’ Spotify playlist.
