THROW VISION entered the studio to record their debut album, In I, just months after forming in the Spring of 2012. In I carries a sound that is undeniably “Throw Vision,” bringing together diverse influences -- Debussy, Animal Collective and Here We Go Magic -- on top of soulful pulses of r&b and jazz.
The band crowdsourced funds for the album through a successful, wide-reaching Kickstarter campaign, deemed by Pigeons and Planes as one of ten Kickstarter projects “worth investing in,” alongside Amanda Palmer’s celebrated $1 million+ endeavor. The Bushwick Daily called In I “beautiful”, yet so genre-bending that classifying the sound would be “challeng[ing] even [to] an audiophile.” Boxx Magazine, a publication supported by the McCormick Foundation, labeled In I an “overall hypnotic opus.”
Throw Vision played NYU Skirball Center in October to a live and virtual audience of over 30,000 people across the globe as the house band for the annual Summit Conference, produced by art giants Creative Time -- the brains behind the Tribute in Light for 9/11 and the MTA’s immense HEARD•NY project in Grand Central with Nick Cave.
In March, Throw Vision was voted Deli Magazine’s “NYC Artist of the Month” by an ever-growing fanbase, spreading in grassroots fashion to new, appreciative ears. Their live show continues to evolve into an immersive, ear-and-mind-opening experience that might leave you, as it left one Free Williamsburg journalist, “amazed.”
Stay on the lookout for new material and recordings, including a music video featuring the work of visual artist Riitta Ikonen, and a summer session at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studios.
