Bands with the work ethic of Austin’s The Sour Notes don’t come along very often. With a schedule that includes plenty of DIY releases, tours and countless singles, they prove that some bands are ready to put in the work. On their latest drop, their second 7″ this year, they come out swinging with two songs that are hard to dislike. Where Shoulda/Enough shines is where the trio takes their genre mixing sound.
With “Shoulda,” the band brings their sparkled indie gaze to the track. The happy-go-lucky pace of the song definitely gets into your head and doesn’t leave. Touched with Southern twang, the song reminds you of hot Summer nights in the lone star state. On “Enough” the trio adds a bit of their more jingled notes from past releases. Complete with a lounge kind of structure, the song has this slow build where the vocals create a relaxed feeling that expands what the band is known for. The hook filled guitar that dances between the notes makes for a nice touch while giving you another song you can’t forget.
The songs are both available on a limited run seven inch vinyl available directly from the band’s shows, or digitally from wherever you download music. They can also be streamed on all streaming sites. The Sour Notes will be on a small run of tour that begins in Austin, TX at The ABGB on October 26 until their set in Houston, TX at Big Top Lounge on November 01. The band’s tour dates can be accessed here.
