Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Since the release of their debut album Confident Music For Confident People in 2018, Melbourne based pop duo Confidence Man have spent the last two years relentlessly touring the globe with the altruistic aim of making as many people dance away their troubles as possible.
Comprised of siblings Janet Planet and Sugar Bones, the pair have acquired a huge following – especially in the UK – who have adopted Confidence Man like one of their own.
Confidence Man also boasts a host of famous fans, in particular former Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher, who after spending a night partying with the band after a U2 gig in Melbourne invited the duo to support him on his forthcoming UK summer outdoor gigs.
Ahead of their shows with the chief, Confidence Man come to the UK for a run of headline dates in April, including their largest London gig to date at the capital’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.
As Confidence Man prepare to step onboard that dreaded 24-hour plane ride, the duo picks out some of the tracks that will be soundtracking their upcoming travels.
Deee-lite – What Is Love?
“A wonky good-natured late night groove contemplating what love is. Easy to step back and forth to.”
X-press 2 Feat. David Byrne – Lazy
“David Byrne letting loose over a laidback early 2000s house groove. A go-to party track.”
Jennifer Lopez – Waiting For Tonight
“All great songs come back around for another day in the sun every ten years or so, and this one is back in a big way for us. What a chorus, what a woman.”
Mind Enterprises – Idol
“Feel-good cheesy Italo-house with all the right sound effects in all the right places.”
Baxter Dury – Carla’s Got A Boyfriend
“Baxter making promises he can’t keep. It’s nice to be jealous every now and then.”
