TRIFFID ALBUM OF THE WEEK: CONFIDENT MUSIC FOR CONFIDENT PEOPLE BY CONFIDENCE MAN

26 April 2018 | Blog

April 25 – May 5

Arguably one of the hottest acts in the world right now, Confidence Man release their debut album ‘Confident Music for Confident People!’

The 11-track album, which was written and produced by the band will be followed by an Australian album tour which sees the band performing their biggest headline shows to date. In amongst all that action they will also be travelling the country on the Groovin the Moo tour.
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 18 months 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.
