Listen: ‘Conversations, Conversations’ by Stumps

The chatter has begun. “The pressure is on.” STUMPS return today with a punchy take on overheard interactions with ‘Conversation, Conversations’. Inspired by throw-away conversations overheard in the current dating climate, the band has reflected on this accidental survey and transformed it into a lyrical stab at masculinity and the often pointless attempt people make at impressing others.

‘Conversations, Conversations’ kicks in with a distinct, deliberate and powerful drive that carries throughout, championed by singer Kyle Fisher’s distinctive baritone vocal. It’s an indie rock vs brit-pop mish-mash party tune and one that is sure to get arena dance floors moving when STUMPS head out on tour nationally with Trophy Eyes, Maddy Jane and Dear Seattle this October.

STUMPS work fast. This latest single is out just after their debut EP Just Another Stay at Home Son hit virtual shelves in March. It’s an evolutionary step for the young band who only formed just over a year ago on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. In their short lifespan they’ve already achieved triple j Unearthed rotation and airplay on ‘Piggyback’, ‘This Home is Mine’ and ‘We’ll Do it Anyway’ – all from their debut EP. Last year STUMPS went on tour with mates Dear Seattle and this year hit the road with Maddy Jane. A sold out Sydney headliner followed, solidifying their live presence further with packed out crowds at their Brisbane and Melbourne shows.

Recently signing to national booking powerhouse 123 Agency, the band has also teamed up with Love + Rent – joining the same management family as KWAMEFritz & RAAVE TAPES. With a growing team, the young four piece are now locked and loaded. It’s time for the chatter, rumours and ‘Conversation, Conversations’ to run wild.
