Throws (the British duo of Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay) face the cold light of day on the new track “Punch Drunk Sober,” off the upcoming debut album Throws. “Punch Drunk Sober” highlights Genders’ and Lindsay’s incredible vocal harmonies, with beautiful choral additions from Sigurlaug Gísladóttir (formerly of Mum). “Punch Drunk Sober” is a super catchy, textured pop track that’s guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
Throws was recorded in Reykjavik, Iceland, allowing the band to collaborate with an impressive community of Icelandic musicians including Gísladóttir and the string quartet Amiina (Sigur Ros collaborators). Throws’ debut is a delicious sonic adventure full of unexpected elements, and the duo’s boundless explorative nature results in a lush recording that tickles the intellect and takes you out of your head, all as it makes your toes tap.
