Sydney trio STUMPS announce a national tour in support of their debut album ‘All Our Friends’. A genre-bending journey full of anthemic hooks, counterbalanced by Fisher’s deep lyricism and unsmiling baritone, summarised in a crushing love letter to how our environment shapes us.
STUMPS have created a unique kind of contemplative disco, one that would have people swinging from the rafters just as soon as they’re done having an existential crisis. Full of sly, self-aware nods to Brit-pop and the alternative rock of the late 90s and early 00s, the album, produced by Fletcher Matthews, is full of contrasts and contemporary ambivalence that sees the three-piece taking a leap forward, evolving from a band that were finding their feet, to one that draws comparisons to Bloc Party, Gang Of Youths and Talking Heads.
NME described the album as “A riotous pastiche of classic indie disco sounds that throws back to sticky club dance-floors and late-night singalongs”, while Mixdown proclaimed the trio as “One of the brightest bands in Australia’s indie rock scene today."
STUMPS have built a loyal fanbase, winning audiences over nationally via their headline shows, festival slots and supports for the likes of Trophy Eyes, Dear Seattle and Maddy Jane. Catch the band support their debut album ‘All Our Friends’ throughout April and May 2021.
