SUB POP sign Thumpers!

Sub Pop are very pleased to welcome THUMPERS to the label who will release their debut album in North America in 2014. Comprised of long time friends Marcus Pepperell (vocals, guitar, keys) and John Hamson Jr. (drums, vocals, bass), THUMPERS make colourful, exuberant alt-pop that celebrates their innate musical kinship and draws upon their shared childhood memories. Both buoyant and lush, the London-based band combine layered androgynous vocals with muscular drums, astral synths and shimmering guitars in a celebration of the breathless sensations of youth and coming of age. 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.

As a preview of what’s to come you can now listen to the THUMPERS joyous single “Sound Of Screams” via Soundcloud.
