Getting that tour confidence, man with Confidence Man
It’s Confidence Man. Their name is their mantra, how do they do it? How can you do it too? It’s Confidence, Man. It’s confident music for confident people. It’s about finding that bounce in your step and turning it into the bump in the night. It’s about finding your groove, it’s sharing the get down with a few hundred other people in sweaty esctasy. It’s an attitude. Confidence Man is the cocksure wink before you leave on a motorcycle to whatever rave is next.
Confidence Man have already been making waves with their insane and critically touted live show, it’s high energy and star-powered by the big names heading your favourite indie acts like Jungle Giants and Moses Gun Collective. Garnering much praise over their instantly grooving beats and sassy yet catchy lyrics, Confidence Man have already carved themselves out their very own deliciously dance-y niche.
With their freshly released ‘Bubblegum’ already becoming a hit, after the much-loved ‘Boyfriend (Repeat)’s success – Confidence Man are now on their ‘Hard Candy’ Tour – crossing the nation to give the much needed ego boost/stimulus package Australia needs in the form of a goddamn get down.
The ever elusive Confidence Man took time out of their high powered confidence-building schedule to give Purple Sneakers a little snapshot into their tour essentials. Check out below to see what makes these egos go.
Good eye makeup remover
“This was pretty painful for our first tour. Sugar and I spent about an hour after each show trying to get the black makeup off our eyes. I actually ended up with my eyelid splitting open once… So we got a fancy make up remover and now Sugar doesn’t complain so much about having to put it on.”
“This one is self explanatory. It sucks having to go home by yourself when you aren’t let in to the party.”
“From Kaboo to Sluts & Masters, we are the kings and queens of card games.”
“Champagne is the best drink to dance with and it also it makes you feel cool.”
With their new single and tour dates, Confidence Man also announce the news that they have signed to iconic indie UK label Heavenly Recordings, home to the likes of Australian comrades, King Gizzard and Lizard Wizard.
