sidebody is based in somerville, ma. we are a band, we are a printing press, we are a performance project, and we are a space.
sidebody is about being where we are: we make work for our neighbors and co-create with our neighbors in order to archive and document changing times and places together.
“sidebody is a collection of shared things: shared notes, all vibrating within the same space; shared songs, sometimes written in front of a live audience; a shared home, Somerville, Mass.” - The Boston Hassle
“They've crafted a spectacular sound, sidebody — the songs feel raw, or visceral might be a better word actually. There's an urgency to their music that captures the excitement and joy of creativity, that feeling of something coming together in real time. Even at their most downtempo and rootsy the band has a wonderful energy to their sound” - 92.5FM The River
