The song is about going out on the rip as an act of self-destruction, thinly disguised as a voyage of self-reflection. It swings from sincerity to hyperbole and back again, in the voice of someone who’s too deep in it to see the wood for the trees. Honesty and braggadocio form a potent cocktail, as the narrative is bent to breaking point.

Speaking about the writing process for Topher Grace, singer Oisin Leahy Furlong says;

“In writing the song I wanted to see if I could free myself of the song writing crutches I would normally reach for – like structure and melody – and replace them with a more considered approach to lyric writing and performance. It’s a terrifying thing to hone your craft only to tear the rule book up, but the results were very rewarding. 

I spent the best part of 3 months recording several different demos until I plucked up the courage to bring it to the band. It ended up being a very cathartic experience and tapped into a creative space we had never gone before. 

I took inspiration from songwriters like Courtney Barnett and James Murphy, to Mark E. Smith and Nick Cave, with the latter especially influencing the bridge between lyrical sentiment and true performance”. 

With touring on hold, THUMPER have spent their time in the studio writing and recording, as well as hosting live streams on social media for their fans with the support from Culture Ireland, IMRO and First Music Contact.

THUMPER’s last single ‘Ad Nauseam’ received overwhelming support from Irish and UK media, as well as prime placement on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. “Such a huge band. Really really massive sound! –Abbie McCarthy, BBC Radio 1
