STUMPS may still be fresh faces to many but make no mistake, this Sydney four piece have wasted no time at all in snatching the attention of music fans, industry heads and tastemakers around the country. Their debut single ‘Piggyback’ and sophomore release ‘This Home is Mine’ saw STUMPS win praise with Australian blogs and triple J Unearthed;
“Like The Fratellis, but whisky-soaked. A solid debut from a band with a knack for writing tunes to boogie the night away to!” – Pilerats
“A punch in the air and a whip-full of energy later and you’ve got yourself an explosion of sound and a soaring track you can’t help but sing along to. You’ve taken this one straight home, boys!” – Claire Mooney, Triple J Unearthed
The band has used this positive momentum to solidify their live presence and now announce the details surrounding their highly anticipated debut EP… ‘JUST ANOTHER STAY AT HOME SON’.
Listen to ‘Just Another Stay At Home Son’ here:
The EP is not only a great snapshot of how far STUMPS have come in a short amount of time, but a great introductory piece for newcomers alike. Musical influences come steeped Brit-pop and alt-rock traditions; Kyle Fisher’s vocals switch from haunting to hypnotic, while indie-rock guitar riffs crash and weave within the melodic arrangements that make these songs irresistible to bop to.
STUMPS can next be seen out on the road in April, joining fellow emerging Australian favourite – Maddy Jane – on her EP release tour in Sydney and Melbourne. Fans can also catch STUMPS bringing ‘JUST ANOTHER STAY AT HOME SON’ out to venues down the East Coast on their headline EP release tour this May.
