Thumpers – 'Dancing’s Done'

Thumpers live up to their name with ‘Dancing’s Done’, in that the intro sounds like a load of stuff being hit with sticks. It turns into big, gushy indie via some Elbow-y vocals, then there’s a kick-arse guitar solo, then it ends up sounding like something Win Butler once hummed but forgot about.
