Our favourite Sydney trio STUMPS have announced the release of their debut album, All Our Friends, due out this December! The band have also shared their new single, I’ve Had Enough.
Following their phenomenal previous single, Mt. Pleasant, their new uplifting track navigates cheating negativity and embracing as much fun as you can possibly have. Something that rings loud after a tumultuous year. Bassist Merrick Powell explains, “2020 has been full of challenges, and this song is a bit of an emotional dump about how the pressure can take its toll. We wanted to contrast that with a sense of positivity, so we tried bringing that side to life in the production and video.”. The release is accompanied by an official visual, which sees a construction worker and an office worker bound and forced to watch some pretty great dance moves.
Produced by Fletcher Matthews, their debut record is set to be a genre-bending ride, full of anthemic hooks counterbalanced by Fisher’s deep lyricism and baritone vocals. Infusing references of Brit-pop and the alternative rock of the late 90s and early 00s, the record is full of indie-rock hooks and grooves as well as the bands own unique approach to disco, taking a more contemplative approach. There is a dark thematic thread that runs through the record, paralleling the coastal towns the band members were raised within. “I wouldn’t deny it’s a privilege to live in an area as idyllic as the Northern Beaches, but that coastal charm can be deceiving, and masks this dark underbelly of some serious societal issues." explains frontman Kyle Fisher. "It’s this bleak contrast that inspired a lot of the lyrical content, particularly on songs like 'I’ve Had Enough'."
STUMPS will be hitting the road in April next year, after being forced to reschedule their tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The band will also be supporting Trophy Eyes on their NSW tour next month.
