Single:‘In My Room’
Release Date: 26 April 2019
Label: Reckless Records
THUMPER are Dublin’s most exciting noise-pop sextet, delivering bubblegum psych through a wall of sonic death. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows, and a penchant for howling feedback and pounding rhythm, each show is an exercise in unpredictability. Their new track ‘In My Room’ is a discussion about willing yourself into a reclusive state; telling yourself it’s an act of autonomy when really it’s an act of self-sabotage. It’s a word soup of denial and confession, and a warning letter to a future self about the mania of self-imposed loneliness.
‘In My Room’ builds upon THUMPER’s reputation for harnessing costic noise and saccharine hooks, giving you exactly what you hoped for, but sounding like nothing you’ve heard before. With major radio support across Ireland and the UK and stretching as far as Brazil, these guys are currently riding high on Spotify’s Hot New Bands playlist. It’s no wonder THUMPER are consistently topping the “Ones To Watch” lists, touring relentlessly, headlining Hard Working Class Heroes, joining Fangclub on a national tour, playing their first UK show at a sold out Shacklewell Arms and playing festivals all summer long.
