‘Down’ is a swaggering beast of a track. The lo-fi production draws the listener in with each hook and beat, and at the core is great songwriting.
Whether the 7 minute long version or the snippier radio edit, it’s a winner every single second and blasts the listener into a world where riffs and pop hooks exist together manically but happily.
2018 has seen THUMPER top several Ones To Watch lists in Ireland and tour relentlessly headlining Hard Working Class Heroes, joining Fangclub on tour, and playing festivals all summer long such as Sea Sessions, Body & Soul, and Electric Picnic. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows, and a penchant for howling feedback and pounding rhythm, each THUMPER performance is an exercise in unpredictability.
The band’s records masterfully capture the full-force energy of their live shows, and the result harnesses the best elements of rock, grunge and pop. Thumper is a band on the cusp of something, a breakthrough into the mainstream? If this track is anything to go by, Thumper are ready.
