Throwing Up only formed late 2010 but have wasted little time in making a name for themselves. Dubbed one of the 'Best Live Acts' at SXSW this year, causing a frenzy at Primavera and catching the eye at 1234 Festival led to the band getting some label interest and support slots alongside Cerebral Ballzy, Off!, The Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees on their recent tours. Dubbed London's latest DIY shit storm by NME, Throwing Up have been rising like a grotty phoenix, capturing attention with their snarling brand of loud, defiant punk.

The band was formed by Clare James Clare (bass, vocals) and Camille Benett (guitar, vocals), formerly of girl group Headless who were then joined by mosher extraordinaire Ben Rayne (Drums) to complete Throwing Up, purveyors of an abrasive brand of post punk decorated in scuzz-ridden guitars and post-grunge vocals. It is not all sticky venue floors and vomit-logged dreadlocks, as buried beneath their filthy exterior are poppy arrangements that will appeal to those of you who enjoy a diamond in the rough.

Their first self released single 'When I Touch You' sold out very quickly through word of mouth and gained the attention of New York label ‘What's Your Rupture?’ who will release their next single 'Mother Knows Best' on October 27th. Driven by a distorted guitar, the trilling, hypnotic vocals of Camille and Clare and rauccous skin beating of Ben, the track is the perfect wide scale introduction to Throwing Up.
