Arguably one of the hottest acts in the world right now (even the guys from U2 are fans), this is Confidence Man's debut album 'Confident Music for Confident People' and, at this very point in time, it's packed with bangers and plays like a greatest hits.
Confident Music for Confident People sets eleven tales of 21st century ennui to irresistible, irrepressible dance music.
The opening lines of Try Your Luck ("I must confess/I've been sleeping with your ex/'Cos I heard he was the best/I must confess/I never would have guessed he would get so obsessed. I'm not surprised") set the tone perfectly for what follows.
Here is a set of songs that take the kind of all-consuming interior monologues that bored, disaffected youth are wrestling with the globe over and places them square in the middle of the rave. A portable party that's levelled dance floors and flattened festival crowds as it's rolled out across the world, Confidence Man are a machine custom designed to make you dance and lose your cool.
It's been a whirlwind time so far for Confidence Man following a 2017 triple j unearthed J Award nomination, two sold out headline Australian East Coast tours and three trips to UK/Europe for headline shows and festivals.
Theirs was one of the most talked about sets at Splendour in the Grass, they had mammoth performances at Glastonbury, set punters abuzz at The Great Escape, completed a run with Falls Festival and took home the boot from Golden Plains.
Earlier releases 'Better Sit Down Boy', 'Bubblegum' and 'Boyfriend (Repeat)' have amassed over two million Spotify streams collectively, and secured remixes by a roll call of respected electronic names including Jono Ma, Andrew Weatherall, and Lindstrom and Prins Thomas. Confident Music for Confident People is big and brash and bright as hell and you won't want to miss out on seeing it live as it tours the globe this year.
