Heavy touring last year helped Irish noise rock band THUMPER find themselves at the top of many ones to watch lists and now the band offer up their latest single ‘In My Room’. The band have already built a reputation for frenetic live shows and with so many under their belt it is easy to see why. Now is the time for THUMPER to make the leap and begin taking that reputation to the streets of England which will enveitably lead to comparisons to bands like Fontaines D.C. who seem to be tearing things up wherever they go.
THUMPER’s new release displays a more melodic edge with a melody that instantly sticks in your head. Its woozy vocal brings an off-kilter edge to ‘In My Room’ washing the track in a dazed, smokey feeling that soon explodes into life. The choruses are huge on this one, pumping with a raucous energy that highlights just why the band’s live performances are turning so many heads. This one is a real toe topper, head banger full of nuance and powerful intent that will surely define THUMPER as the year develops.
