News: Dublin-Based Noise Pop Outfit Thumper Announce New EP

Thumper is a Dublin based noise pop outfit who have been crafting something special since their inception. Creating their own unique brand of glitter-smeared, chaotic, distortion drenched pop which has been capturing the attention of Dublin’s gig-going populous, making them closely watched with anticipation for this new EP – “Magnum Opuss”.

They are a five-piece spearheaded by Oisin Leahy Furlong and “Magnum Opuss” is their sophomore EP. This release sees Thumper depart from the more garage-rock stylings of their debut EP, sees them going into more experimental ground – with long noise breakdowns, stacks of layered guitars and drums, and a ridiculously keen ear for off-kilter melodies. Over the 5-tracks on the EP Leahy Furlong asserts his song-writing prowess and sharp lyricism, showing that Thumper are something to be treasured – both locally and internationally.

“Magnum Opuss” is set to be released by Little L Records on June 17th, you can pre-order a copy of the EP on hand spraypainted cassette here.
