Throwing Muses are known for performing music with shifting tempos, creative chordprogressions, unorthodox song structures, and surreal lyrics. The group was set apart from other contemporary acts by Hersh's stark, candidwriting style, Donelly's pop stylings and vocal harmonies and David Narcizo's unusual drumming techniques eschewing use of cymbals. Hersh'shallucinatory, febrile songs occasionally touched on the subject of mental illness, more often drawing portraits of characters from daily life oraddressing relationships. « hide
