Sourpatch is a four piece 90’s pop-worship ensemble from San Jose, Ca—-whose songs talk of (but aren’t limited to) crushes painfully hopeless, awkwardly awesome and feelings of the like. Formed from a mutual love of songs about unbearably impossible romances, Sourpatch channels the 90’s Northwest sound and in vein of bands like Velocity Girl, Tiger Trap, Rocketship, Boyracer, Cub, Heavenly, Go Sailor, Black Tambourine, and so many 90’s west coast babes! or any number of female/queer punk groups on the roster of Spin Art, Slumberland, Chainsaw & K records in the ’90s.
Formed in San Jose in late 2007, Nicole Munoz, Christine Tupou, Mander Farrell, and Rich Gutierrez played two coastal U.S. tours, self-released a seven-song demo, and released a free single on Where It’s At Is Where You Are (WIAIWYA) by the end of 2009. In 2010, the band announced that they would be releasing their debut album, Crushin’, on Athens, GA’s Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records. Since then they have toured throughout the U.S. twice, another east coast tour and a UK tour in early 2011 also releasing another 7” single “mira mija” and appearing on several compilations.
Plans for early 2012 include a new full length LP “stagger & fade” with artwork from kicking giants tae won yu plus a full 5 week US tour!
Sourpatch endorses a gender freeing, queer positive, feminist thinking, body positive, crush worthy lifestyle!
