A decade-plus of respect from the Australian hip-hop scene and wider music community. Five acclaimed albums, the last three of which have all debuted in the ARIA top 10. Countless shows around the country punctuated, by smiling faces (because “Smiles Don’t Lie”) and sweat-soaked dancing shoes. You don’t get these sort of things without looking at a bigger picture, and Thundamentals are definitely a crew that are all about using broad brush-strokes on their ever-widening sonic canvas.
