Today’s song is “Cynthia Ann” by SOURPATCH.The San Jose, CA band formed in late 2007 and is made up of Nicole Munoz, Christine Tupou, Mander Farrell, and Rich Gutierrez. Like their name the music is a bruised fruit; it’s rancid candy. It’s a cute joke turned around and shoved back down the listener’s throat. They are in love with being alive, knowing it can be taken away at any time, and goddamn it feels so good.
This is the first single off the band’s upcoming album Stagger and Fade, which will be out on HHBTM Records on 2/28. Building on a breakout with their first full-length, Crushin’ in 2011 the band and their label (HHBTM Records) received national attention from publications like The Village Voice, NPR, and Bust magazine. 2012 finds them poised to take an even bigger leap forward.
Sourpatch endorses a gender freeing, queer positive, all-ages, feminist hinking, crush worthy lifestyle. They embody what it feels like to come to a vista point of influences, to embrace matriarchal ideals imparted years before their time and take on a radical critique of the world around them.
Their music is fun and hopeful; we can’t get enough.
