1/2/3/4 — #240 — Sour Widows

Sour Widows are from the Bay Area in the US, the trio first forming in 2017. They have been fine-tuning a sound that swings from gently glowing harmonizing to energetic bursts of feedback-laced catharsis. After their hypnotic Crossing Over release they return with a new track, Witness, that cycles the listener through shades of grief. Highly Recommended.
