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 albumThrows. "Punch Drunk Sober" highlights Genders' and Lindsay's incredible vocal harmonies, with beautiful choral additions from Sigurlaug Gísladóttir(formerly of Mum), and it's a super catchy, textured pop track that's guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
Listen to "Punch Drunk Sober" here, and pre-order Throws right over here.
Throws is out June 10!
Who is Jackie Lynn? The mysterious songstress is currently on the lam, having just barely dodged a police bust on her Chicago south side apartment, but the track "Alien Love" from a recovered LP has turned up. Jackie, however, is still missing in action.
"Alien Love" hints at Jackie's tormented relationship with Tom Strong (real name unknown) and provides the perfect getaway soundtrack, with breathy vocals and pulsating bass.
Listen: Jackie Lynn, "Alien Love"
