“Sourdough’s debut single, ‘Let It Be Known’, is a rescue mission armed with a Sonic Youth ray-gun, aimed directly towards the shadows of the mind. It hits the target every time, with waves of jagged guitars and explosive drums cutting through the black surroundings to give you something real”
Ben Barry – Vandalism Begins At Home
Layers of energetic drums, driving bass lines, crunchy guitar interplay and poetic lyrics characterise SOURDOUGH’s unique and infectious sound. The Dunstable-based 4-piece formed in the summer of 2018 and have since worked tirelessly writing, perfecting and performing their diverse arsenal of tracks across Bedfordshire and London. Their chaotic live shows have gained them a loyal following that grows with every gig and their debut record ‘Let It Be Known’ is hotly anticipated. The sky is the limit for this talented young band.
