East London’s newest punk/grunge heroes, Throwing Up are set to release their debut album on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis label on the 8th of July 2013.
‘Over You’, recorded and self produced in London last year, was mixed by Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer and features eleven tracks including the forthcoming single ‘Medicine’
Meet Throwing Up. Their music is the sound of a kind of sticker book collage of the best of the past and the present, with one eye on the future. There’s cluesthat they’re from London and it’s 2013 but they could be from anywhere, anytime in the last 30, or even the next 10 years – ‘Over You’ builds a house on these raw foundations. With their whistle at the bus stop hooks and snappy tunes their songs are stripped back, yet so catchy too… it’s Agit pop like we’ve not seen in a while. A little bit of something to shake the mainstream up but happy to be a poster on your bedroom wall too – We love Camille and
Clare and we reckon the world will too. We love Throwing Up and they’re what we really need right now!
Album Tracklisting: 1. Red Ribbon 2. Big Love 3. Snake 4. Toothache 5. Mother Knows Best 6. Sarah, 7. Gone Again 8. Bother You 9. Stomach Pain 10. Medicine 11. When I Touch You
Throwing Up began early last year when Camille Benett (vocals/guitar) and ClareJames Clare (bass/vocals) both formerly of unhinged girl-rage rock quartet Headless teamed up with drummer Andrew Moran. The trio have since built up a great reputation for their explosive live shows which combine the emotional impact of their songs with irreverent delivery and theirs is a sweet spot somewhere between self-awareness and youthful innocence.
Throwing Up will play the following dates in the Summer with more shows to be announced in the very near future.
