Fifty years and counting since singer Danny Bowes met guitarist Luke Morley, and three decades since they founded British rock giants Thunder, the south London fivesome release their magnum opus, Dopamine.
Thunder's first double album, Dopamine delivers 16 new tracks that cover a world of musical territory. Too vital to be simply labeled veterans, too varied in style to be just another classic rock band, Thunder are at their very peak of their considerable form, as evidenced by the wealth of light and shade on Dopamine.
Dopamine follows 2021’s All The Right Noises, which was a return to the full-throttle sound of Thunder, and continued their consecutive Top 10 UK Album Chart run at No.3, since their ecstatically received comeback seven years ago. It’s another chapter in the band’s incredibly successful history that has seen them create a succession of some of the most highly-regarded rock albums of the past 30 years.
The key to their success? Brilliantly conceived top-drawer material. Thunder is one of the last of the true British rock giants.
