Thumpers return with noisy gem, ‘Gargantua’

It's their first new material in two years.
Thumpers have released their first new material in two years – check out ‘Gargantua’ below.

It’s ‘officially’ out on Friday, 25th November, and marks the duo’s first release since collaborations EP ‘Together’ and debut album ‘Galore’ in 2014.

“The song is about this cartoonish need to put on muscle. I mean, I see these huge men everywhere now. It seems like that’s now an insane requirement that’s just accepted more and more but it’s something that has these other much bigger male insecurities behind it,” says Marcus Pepperell.

“So I wanted to mock that but also I definitely get that there’s this craving to make yourself matter somehow. I just don’t think that taking up more space is the best way to do it.”

The duo have a new live date coming up too, at London’s Courtyard Theatre on 8th December.
