Another Onomatopoiea release day. I love these days. Hurtling – Summer is out in download and streaming for in all the usual places.
Here is a little interview with Loud Women which has a link to the video too.
I’m very proud to be working with Jen Macro, Simon Kobayashi and Jon Jonathan Clayton on this release and their album Future From Here.
They are great people and make great pop-noise.
Here is what some other people think:
“Great song (and voice!),” Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses)
‘led by the goddess-like genius that is Jen Macro, an absolutely stunning guitarist, songwriter, and all-round awesome loud woman,’ Loud Women
“…like Karen Carpenter fronting The Smashing Pumpkins,” Jo Bevan (Desperate Journalist)
“From the first instant that Jen Macro’s pure pop vocals roll out from between the sun-drenched, lazy guitar lines and off-kilter rhythm lines, ‘Summer’ builds up and kicks in with intent (and fuzzed out bass lines).It’s a song with everything.” Raw Meat
“Starting off with gentle, finger-picked lilting melodies and the luscious, delicate vocals of Jen Macro, ‘Summer’ soon builds with sun-drenched whirring hooks and immense beats to a fuzz-filled noisepop anthem, as Macro’s vocals reveal their true raw grit. A scuzzy dream of a track, it’s impossible not to get caught up in its sparkling, psychedelic haze, which will leave you longing for more of Hurtling’s epic sonic delights.” Get In Her Ears
‘Their crunchy alt-rock sound is entirely of their own making and leaves a packed Windmill baying for more,’ Joyzine
Hurtling‘s influences include The Breeders, Sebadoh and Sonic Youth, but make a sound that is all their own. After working with the likes of: My Bloody Valentine, Graham Coxon, The Monochrome Set, Chris T-T, Kath Bloom and Jon Fine (Bitch Magnet)
