Having released their jubilant debut single 'Dancing's Done' through paradYse Records and Kissability earlier this year, Thumpers have released their debut EP 'Unkinder' as a limited 12" vinyl TODAY 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.
Though Marcus Pepperell (vocals, guitar, keys) and John Hamson Jr. (drums, vocals, bass) produce the majority of their music themselves, they have recently begun working with David Kosten (Bat for Lashes, Everything Everything) who lends additional production and his mix skills to 'Unkinder (A Tougher Love)'
The 4-track EP reveals a band bristling with ideas from the delicately epic 'Marazion Bay' and a Jack Savidge (Friendly Fires) remix & Eagles For Hands remix of the title track to their spectacular cover of Bjork's 'Innocence' featuring the alternative choir Gaggle. Live, they are augmented by an interchanging cast of friends and musicians in faithfully bringing their immersive dynamics and grand scale sonic vision to the stage.
