Day Pro


Ah, noise pop! Thumper are precocious champions of destruction well-versed in the noble art of entangling great songs until they degenerate into chaos. This Irish combo has a hell of a melodic sting that they deliver through a wall of sonic death, at times in blasts of three minutes and at others in longer deliveries during which they never lose their nerve, transmitting a positively contagious excitement.
