Morning Music Notes – And I Don’t Wanna Miss a Gangnam Style
Recently signed to Sub Pop, UK band Thumpers have a video for new single Sound of Screams (which is the sound my dates often end in). The band are currently touring with PHM favourites CHVRCHES, and you can download a cover of a CHVRCHES song if you’re within 50 miles of one of the shows. Otherwise, you remote, small town fans are fucked over once again.
Sound of Screams is out October 28 – but Pete, how does it sound? Well, click the play button below to find out, or I can tell you it features layered vocals (like previous song Unkinder (A Tougher Love)) and some nice bits of percussion. So yeah, click the play button.
