You gotta admire a band whose moniker serves as shorthand for its aesthetic. London’s Thumpers make loud, brassy pop, with massive drums, molten guitars, and lyrics balled up into propulsive yelps. The duo’s Sub Pop debut Galore came out in February, its cover stamped with a couple of bare feet trampling down a slope toward some off-camera beach. If you’re looking for those breathless, euphoric moments of half-remembered youth, Thumpers know exactly where to scratch.
