New song: Sour Widows – Pilot Light

Formed only last year, Sour Widows’ debut single ‘Tommy’ was suggestive of a band who had been perfecting their craft much longer. Today, they release ‘Pilot Light’, an effortlessly cool follow-up. A tightly-wound, prodding guitar provides a playground for singer Maia Sinaiko to exude a Faye Webster-like assuredness over, “My pilot light glows blue / Every time I think a stranger looks like you”, they sing off-handedly. That sheen is blasted off with the fraught, angst ridden chorus; their more passionate vocal now offset against ear-bleeding guitars. This ability to transition from cool to dishevelled on request is just further proof that Sour Widows are amongst 2019’s best new bands. Their forthcoming self-titled EP will set that view in concrete. Trust us.
