“Galore,” released on Sub Pop in February, is the first album from London electro-pop duo Thumpers, but guitarist-keyboardist Marcus Pepperell and drummer-bassist John Hamson Jr. have known each other since their preteen years. A break in their other projects a couple years ago led them to collaborate on tunes that resulted in two EPs that earned BBC attention and eventually a full-length deal. - Peter Blackstock
