I love poppy melodies. And I love big filthy lo-fi guitars. This makes Dublin’s THUMPER the perfect choice as they have a knack of being able to get you singing along and jumping around at the same time. There’s something about the combination of the filthy and pure that just puts a jig in my wheel.
This new track, ‘(You’re Bringing Me) Down’, produced by Dan Fox of Girl Band, starts out as a catchy and furious number before fusing itself into a hooky version of the avant garde noise sported by the likes of Sonic Youth. It is as epic as it is unassuming. Which is just the way it should be.
