Throwing Up - 'Over You'

What ‘Over You’ lacks in substance it makes up for with gloriously out-of-time energy.

It’s been a little old while since we first noted this scrappy, grungy London crew; what have they been doing for two and a half years? From the sounds of it, artfully scuffing their DMs and making sure the thumbholes in their long-sleeved T-shirts are in just the right spot. Songwriting, not so much, but what their debut ‘Over You’ lacks in substance it makes up for with gloriously out-of-time energy, recalling the scowly strops of Elastica at their rawest, or early, squally Ash. The likes of ‘Big Love’ and the “nah-nah-nah”-ing ‘Gone Again’ are rompy, rough-toned fun, with gutter-punk guitars and a simple joy to them. I say hurl.
