Bay Area trio Sour Widows will follow their 2020 self-titled debut EP with their new EP Crossing Over on April 23 via Exploding In Sound (pre-order), and they've just released the gorgeous, nearly-eight-minute title track. It sounds like a cross between '90s slowcore and early Sharon Van Etten, and it feels like a leap forward from the debut EP. The band's Susanna Thomson says:

his one is pretty literally about my experience being in a cross country long distance relationship, and the way it forced me to reckon with choice and sacrifice, make peace with it. I can try my best to have it all, make a time and space for everything it is I value, but at the end of the day, I have to accept the way my life fractures because of how I live it. As long as I'm pursuing what it is I want to do the most, I think I'll always feel that heightened presence of choice and sacrifice.
