At XS Noize, new music is dear to our hearts and we believe that genuinely talented fresh artists deserve a platform to share their material with the world. As such, we will now be showcasing one unsigned act every week, hand picked from submissions by Tom Day for the world to hear. Great news for all you audiophiles out there, but more importantly for those who’s voices deserve to be lifted from the crowd.
For Fans Of: Sonic Youth, Supergrass (Richard III era)
In Their Own Words:
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 debut EP full 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.

Why Tom chose Thumper for the showcase:
These guys really brought something different to the table and stood out like a sore thumb: Irish accents, cheerful, massively fuzzy bubblegum rock, what’s not to like?!
