Perfect proof that 2011 is gonna hurl some exciting new sounds across my city, THROWING UP is a brand new band from London, England. This vomitous triad only formed in September, have been sharing their songs with the world for less than 24 hours, and I’m lovesick already.
Formed of Claire and Camille, formerly of all-girl rage troupe Headless, and world famous fashion photographer (wait I turned into Tyra Banks for a second there) and excellent mosher Ben Rayner, Throwing Up make super cool snarly stripped-down punk that sounds to these ears like a catchy post-grunge echo of DC’s Chalk Circle mixed with a bit of that lo-fi Messthetics-style hustle bustle.
TU has plenty of vomexperience on which to draw, as bassface Clare recalls, “I woke up in the middle of night and projectiled all over my bedroom. That included my ex-boyfriend’s face, dick, slippers, and all the clothes on my rail. When I finally made it to the loo there wasn’t even any vom left in me.”
We can but hope that this is not the case for Throwing Up and that they do indeed have plenty left to spew forth. No release plans as yet — first show “soon!”
I’m feeling a little lightheaded with all these sick metaphors, time bow out here and just say LISTEN (and here’s their Tumblr.)
