With roots in New York, New Zealand, and London, it’s a relief that trio Throwing Up boast a sound worthy of its pedigree, playing compression-free, smash-n-grab punk-rock with vocals that can shift from composed to haywire in three seconds. Their band is comprised of Ben, Clare, and Camille—no questions, no last names—and they’re in country, albeit briefly, to inspire your inner Raincoats fanatic and, hopefully, leave you wanting more than the handful of the taut songs they’ve written so far. With Bad Girlfriend and Street Smells.
