Confidence Man members hail from other great Australian indie bands – The Jungle Giants, The Belligerents and Moses Gunn Collective – and besides having music in common, they also lived together under one roof. The band was founded as a result of a spontaneous jam, where one of the members sat down at the computer and started giving the rest a tune. They all started singing, yelling over the top of one another trying to steal the microphone. Then, they recorded more songs with the same purpose: to have fun. After their song “Boyfriend (Repeat)” was added to regular rotation on the Australian alternative Triple J radio, what started as a pastime of a group of roommates became pretty big in Brisbane. Soon they caught the attention of the audience as well as professionals at their amazing gig at the Australian showcase festival Big Sound Music and were approached by Heavenly Recordings record label.
