Sour Widows Announce Debut Album, Share Video for New Song ‘Cherish’

    Bay Area band Sour Widows have announced their debut LP, Revival of a Friend, which is due June 28 on Exploding in Sound. To mark the news, they’re sharing the new single ‘Cherish’, alongside a video directed by Carr Conaway. Check it out below, and scroll down for the album cover (by Ben Styer and Mac Pogue) and tracklist.

    “’Cherish’ is a plea for love disguised as a curse against the world,” the band’s Maia Sinaiko reflected in a statement. “I started struggling with my mental health in my late teens, and the loss of my partner at age 21 – as well as the tumult of our relationship – exacerbated those issues. I was a very angry person, and I went through several years of being emotionally volatile. Both wanting to connect and be seen while being enraged at the state of my life, I would lash out just to make contact with someone, even if that contact was hurtful. To cherish something is to love it for all that it is. The song says everything I couldn’t say to my family and friends in that grief-stricken state; I hope it can serve as a reminder that we all deserve to be cherished through our hardships, even when we are at our most difficult to love.”
