About this item
Thumpers are comprised of long time friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr. their colourful, exuberant alt-pop celebrates their innate musical kinship and draws upon their shared childhood memories.
Having released their jubilant debut single ‘Dancing’s Done’ through paradYse Records and Kissability earlier this year, the duo now announce their debut EP ‘Unkinder’ will be released as a limited 12” vinyl through Transgressive Records.
'Unkinder (A Tougher Love)' was recorded in their Warwickshire hometown where the London-based duo decamp to write and produce all of their music. The single features additional vocals from Marcus’ sisters - true to the band’s tight knitted collaborative vision – alongside astral synths and lush melodies to create their heady blend of modern pop.
The 4-track EP reveals a band bristling with ideas from the delicately epic ‘Marazion Bay’ and a Jack Savidge (Friendly Fires) remix of the title track to their spectacular cover of Bjork’s ‘Innocence’ featuring the alternative choir Gaggle.
