Last Tuesday, as the country was barreling towards our current point of surrealism one state at a time, I immediately fell in love with the prog-soul stylings of Vinegar Mother at Gold Sounds. Rising up in the NYC scene, the band is now readying to release their debut EP, The Sunny Seat, out tomorrow via self-release.
Vinegar Mother is an evolution up from Julia Zivic & The Brothers featuring the founding members Julia Zivic (lead vocals), Itamar Gov-Ari (keys, guitar and vocals) and Jason Zivic (drums). With new bassist Mike Roninson in the mix, the band is primed for bigger stages like Brooklyn Bowl and festivals all over the country.
Recently, Vinegar Mother unveiled a beautiful video for the EP’s lead single, “Sunny Seat,” which features an intimate live performance take that gives you a little taste of my aforementioned fan conversion. Check out the video and be sure to catch them live at any of the dates listed below. Trust me on this one.
Vinegar Mother Tour Dates:
Fri. 11/18 Radio Bean Burlington, VT
Wed. 11/30 Pianos New York, NY
Sat. 12/17 Studio at Webster Hall New York, NY (opening for The Lonely Biscuits)
