‘Confident Music for Confident People’ by Confidence Man is essentially one long audio book about eleven tales of 21st century ennui to irresistible, irrepressible dance music.
Confidence Man are a four-piece out of Brisbane and they have been making quite a name for themselves as in the uk by selling out their first ever show at Moth Club, performing at various concerts, Vivid Sydney and they are also schedule for this year’s Splendour in the Grass for the first time.
While Boyfriend (Repeat) originally came out in 2016 – and since the group have gone on to release Bubblegum – the group, according to Confidence Man’s front woman Janet Planet, thought it was “the right time to get my old Ken dolls out.”
“We haven’t played with Barbies for a while.”
Throughout this four minute and 17 second video, a whole lot of Ken Dolls get dismembered, destroyed, microwaves, sawed in half, drilled, ripped in half, and many other ungodly things.
With only two singles under their name, Confidence Man continue to show why they are one of the best new acts in the country – with hopefully more music to come… soon!
One of Australia’s highly energetic pop outfits Confidence Man have kicked off the last-half of 2017 with a banger, ‘Better Sit Down Boy’.
Better Sit Down Boy is all about exploring the world of sport, from Bodybuilding to step-up, to playing tennis on the ground.
It’s a feel good clip that makes you want to get up and go and do some exercise. Having already given fans a taste of their music with the releases of ‘Bubblegum’ and ‘Boyfriend (Repeat)‘, Confidence Man continue to show why they are one of the best and funnest bands in the country right now.
Another taste of Confident Music for Confident People came with the release of the fourth taste – chronologically – of the debut album came with the release of ‘Don’t You Know I’m in a Band’. Another bright pop offering of exploration, showcasing more of that great mix of dance, bright pop sounds, and Janet’s vocals.
With Confidence Man releasing their debut album, ‘Confidence Music for Confident People’, today, the duo out of Melbourne have given fans one last taste of the record with the video version for their current hit single ‘Don’t You Know I’m In A Band‘, a single that essentially adds on to the fun, quirkiness of the pop-centric work of Confidence Man.
Having already given a taste of the album with a whole string of singles: ‘Better Sit Down Boy‘, ‘Boyfriend (repeat)‘ and ‘Bubblegum’, Janet Planet and Sugar Bones have put together a video that showcases all the juicy magazine headlines you love, featuring scandalous stories about the band, crime, drugs, parties, success, and other great connotations.

With singles like ‘Try Your Luck’, ‘C.O.O.L. Party’, ‘All The Way’ and ‘Fascination’, this album is great in many ones: (1) the music, (2) the stories, (3) the atmosphere, (4) the collaborative effort of the duo and (5) the essential feel of the album as it offers a fun atmosphere with cheery vibes.
