Thumpers – Unkinder

Thumpers (often stylised as THUMPERS) are an alt. pop duo based in London and formed in late 2011. Their first track, “Sound of Screams”, appeared online in April 2012 and their debut, sold out show followed in September 2012 at the Sebright Arms in Hackney. Childhood friends Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr., who were previously in alt indie bands Antihero and Pull Tiger Tail, regrouped in 2012 after their previous band fell apart due to unsolvable issues with their management and label. After Pull Tiger Tail’s split, Hamson went on to play drums with Noah and the Whale before playing bass and percussion with Friendly Fires on their Pala world tour. During this time the two began writing music that would become the first Thumpers songs via email. Thumpers’ first single was “Dancing’s Done” which was released on limited edition rose-tinted vinyl and cassette tape through Transgressive Records imprints Paradyse Records and Kissability Records in February 2013. The track achieved B-list status on the BBC 6 Music playlist, as well as strong support on BBC Radio 1, Xfm and Amazing Radio. Pepperell’s sisters sing on all recordings to date. Wikipedia®.

Thumpers – Unkinder Lyrics:
We had our hearts lost,
Getting our hair caught and teeth cut,
Starting up wildfires,
Making the Earth move around us.
And in a landslide make tracks,
Turning the hills inside out.
We draw the first blood,
Now that you’ve let us all too far,
Into your heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,
Oh into your heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.

We let our nights run,
We let them stream into our days,
Come to immerse us,
And tie us together, 8 ways,
Blood in our arms through too fast,
Filling us out past, life-sized,
We make the earth move,
Now that you’ve let us all too far,
Into your heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,
Oh into your heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,heart,

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.

A tougher, tougher, tougher, tougher love
