THUMPERS are comprised of long time friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr. - their colourful, exuberant pop celebrates their innate musical kinship and shared memories from their childhood.
Their debut album, ‘Galore’, was released on SONY RED in May 2014, following on from the single ‘Dancing’s Done’ on Kissability and the ‘Unkinder’ EP on Transgressive. In 2013 Thumpers played shows opening for Chvrches and Everything Everything. They supported the release with extensive touring throughout the UK, Europe and America as well as pulling in huge crowds at festivals all summer. Though mostly working just as a duo, Pepperell and Hamson teamed with producer David Kosten for some songs on their debut and extended the live version of the band to include an often rotating cast of players. They released a follow up EP, ‘Together’ in November 2014, which included collaborations with the likes of Blood Red Shoes, Jena Malone and Chloe Howl.
