THUMPER are a noise-pop sextet from Dublin.

In May, THUMPER released their debut studio EP entitled “Out of Body Auto-Message” (produced by Daniel Fox of Girl Band) to a sold out show in Dublin’s Lost Lane, before embarking on a 3 month festival tour which included headline and high profile slots at Primavera (Barcelona), Knockanstockan, Body&Soul, Electric Picnic and many more.

The latter half of 2019 saw the band complete their first headline tour of the UK, inc sold-out shows in London and Bristol, before finally return to Dublin for their second homecoming sell-out of the year in The Grand Social.

With work already begun on their hotly anticipated debut LP, and a slot at Netherlands’ Eurosonic already planned for early 2020, THUMPER will land into their biggest UK tour yet with a swell of anticipation.

Why I gave the above rating: 

After ahaving seen THUMPER perform at festivals a few times, I was eager to hear this EP once I knew of its release. The 5 track EP is the Dublin six piece's first EP, having previously released a few of its songs as singles, including 'Down' and 'In My Room'. THUMPER really are a band that need to be seen live to fully appreciate their brash, yet well-executed style of play, though if you haven't seen them yet, this EP is a good place to start. The first track is 'Down', a fast-paced tune with 'shouty' vocals, significant bass and prominent percussion, though this recurs through most of their tracks, given they have two drummers. This is a short and snappy insight into THUMPER's style of pop rock which is upbeat, and features lots of distortion and lyrics you'll be singing along to by the end.
