The Sour Notes
The Austin psych/pop band are known for their DIY aesthetic, self-releasing over five albums, three 7-inch records, a cassette and have toured nationally 8 times with appearances at CMJ, NXNE, Free Press Summer Fest & SXSW and FunFunFunFest. The Sour Notes have shared the stage with such diverse bands as The Dandy Warhols, Of Montreal, Future Islands, We Are Scientists, Marnie Stern, Daniel Johnston.
The Austin band use their music to create strange moods that are pierced by the golden harmonies of five eagle cries.
“Like dipping into Owsley’s punch bowl with an over-sized ladle and taking a big swig, Surly Gates reveal a space in time like a 60’s flashback. The Ten Years After reference is not a mistake, reminiscent of that seminal TYA album, this Austin band’s debut leaves trails for others to take notice of.” – Popastunes
