THUMPER - Rent Is Due
Info: THUMPER are a noise-pop quintet from Dublin, delivering bubblegum pop through a wall of sonic death. With a reputation for raucous and frenzied live shows, a slew of lo-fi ear worms (think Sonic Youth vs Abba), and penchant for howling feedback and pounding double-drums, this is a band u'll love 2 love.
'Rent is Due' is the lead single from THUMPER's forthcoming EP, Magnum Opuss, and also features the truly excellent Bitch Falcon, as well as the truly righteous OTHERKIN, a holy trinity of Dublin rock bad asses. The track is claustrophobic, there's no space left anywhere for any outside sound or silence to breath, think the scene in Star Wars when Chewbacca, Han Solo, Leia and Luke are in the waste pit in the Death Star and the crusher is closing in from both sides, your head is waiting to pop.
The dizzying and unbridled chaos of distorted guitars and vocals coupled with commanding and manic drumming throw you into the best of Seattle grunge and fuzzed out lo-fi rock n' roll, the band's name, all in upper-case is entirely appropriate. This will come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with the band's self-titled debut EP which mixed early Dandy Warhol's sounds with their trademark sonic ear-bleeding, quality stuff from an exhilarating act.
