“It’s like the anti-single,” says Sour Widows‘ Susanna Thomson. She tells us that the track is a bit of an outlier from the rest of their forthcoming, self-titled EP. “The rest of the EP is really not poppy at all.” The single “Tommy” is a Weezer-influenced, gentle alternative song with an I-want-to-sing-this-while-I-walk-alone kind of way. It’s catchy without being too poppy. It’s got a fine, fine guitar solo. Some of the lyrics are so good you wish you’d have thought of them yourself. Of course, it’s not just the lyrics, but their delivery. To get a sneak peak of Sour Widows’ upcoming EP, take a little listen below to get a taste.

Speaking of taste, this is just the beginning. Stay tuned for the band’s interview with The Bay Bridged next month, where we’ll talk with the whole crew, including vocalist and guitarist Maia Sinaiko and drummer Max Edelman, who tells us, “It’s heavy alternative rock with delicate moments.” Spot on, friend. The band will be playing with Pixx and Rosie Tucker at Cafe du Nord on the 9th of August.
