“manages to completely avoid every current trend being flogged at the moment to approach a timelessness that rewards upon repeated listens” – The Vine
Umpire are Perth’s widescreen indie-rock craftsmen combining sprawling rock sounds with reflective melancholy, expertly wielding massive sun-drenched melodies, serpentine guitar parts and soaring vocals to spectacular effect. Australian audiences first became familiar with the band via with their debut single ‘Streamers’, which achieved widespread critical acclaim, national airplay and won WAM Song of the Year in 2009. Their debut album Now We’re Active (June 2011) builds upon the bands sonic and songwriting mastery to produce what is sure to be one of the most compelling indie-rock releases of the year.
