Heavily influenced by 90s alt-rock, Hurtling's pop sensibilities are bathed/drowned in glorious guitar tones and intricately noisy bass lines all underpinned by driving drums. Taking inspiration from bands such as The Breeders, Sebadoh and Throwing Muses but making a sound all their own, the three members of the band are seasoned professionals. Lead singer/guitarist Jen has played and sung live with a number of respected artists including My Bloody Valentine and Graham Coxon. Drummer Jon has run OneCat Studio in Brixton for over 10 years and has worked with artists including Jim Bob (Carter USM), Charlotte Hatherley, The Monochrome Set and Chris T-T and both Jon and Jen wrote, performed and produced in Something Beginning L. Simon (Bass) is founding member of Smallgang and has lent his musical talents to Shonen Knife, Bitch Magnet and Kath Bloom and as Hurtling they have supported Say Sue Me, Kristeen Young, Wussy and Fonda 500.
"...sonically perfect. Technically faultless. The guitar sound(s) and playing are things of sheer beauty.” - Louder Than War
“A glorious woozy fuzz. Confident and in control, but when they want to, Hurtling can let rip and tear us all a new one” - The Quietus
