THUMPER are a noise-pop quartet from Dublin, delivering bubblegum pop through a wall of sonic death. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows, 2 EPs full of lo-fi ear worms (think Sonic Youth vs Abba), and penchant for howling feedback and pounding rhythm, this is a band u'll love 2 love.
THUMPER have played alongside several Irish contemporaries such as Squarehead, Fangclub, Raglans, OTHERKIN & Bitch Falcon (with the latter two featuring on the single "Rent Is Due"), as well as with Rough Trade's The Prettiots.
Summer 2016 saw THUMPER release their second EP 'Magnum Opuss' on Little L Records, and appear at several festivals including Electric Picnic (IE), Knockanstockan (IE), Other Voices and TRUCK Festival (UK).
Magnum Opuss was subsequently featured in the top 10 EPs of 2016 by The Last Mixed Tape, REMY and District Magazine, with the single 'Dan The Man' also featuring in The Thin Air's top 100 songs of 2016.
