Stream: THUMPER – Fear of Art
As our recent new music coverage firmly attests, Dublin – and the island of Ireland as a whole – is all but overflowing with first-rate guitar bands at the minute.
Right up there with the best is Thumper, a four-piece who describes themselves as “Sonic Youth vs ABBA”. Big words, of course, but this is a band who, over their last few releases, have proved themselves capable of such highfalutin comparison-making. New single ‘Fear of Art’ is another appeasing blast of 90s-soaked self-diagnosis, which, once again, conjures in our mind a more fuzzed-out Blur circa Modern Life is Rubbish.
The second single from the band’s forthcoming Pop! Goes The Weasel EP – which is set for release via Little L Records – stream the single (or buy it here for just €1) below.
