It Hurts

33 Tears

It Hurts is Beth, Angeline and Claire, a trio from Auckalnd. Each have been involved with various musical projects over the years (Futurians, Currer Bells, Octopus, Thistle Group, etc….), but didn’t converge as It Hurts until the torrid summer of 2011. They’ve thus far released two limited tapes; 33 Tears is their debut 7″. These two songs offer a beautiful summation of the crude ooze they’ve issued so far in one easily digestible dose. Whiffs of Heathen Earth-era Throbbing Gristle with a heavy emphasis on fuzzed blues histrionics are present here. Reined to tape by Stefan Neville.
