If you like your pop music colourful, cartoonish and hyperactive then this new Australian four-piece will be right up your funky street. What’s not to like about a band with a lead singer called Janet Planet (the best pop star name I’ve heard in a long time) and some dudes called Sugar Bones, Reggie Goodchild and Clarence McGuffie? Even before you’ve heard the music you just know that you’ve got yourself a group that ooze the good stuff. And they do. In fact they don't just ooze it, they spout it like one huge hip quivering fountain. Confidence Man’s music is sassy, sexy and a hell of a lot of fun. I dare you to listen and not want to shake your ass. You want reference points? OK, I’d suggest Gorillaz, Deee-Lite, Miami Sound Machine, The Go Team, Milkshake by Kelis and Tom Tom Club for starters. This is music for the sunshine. This is pop music doing what pop should do – making you feel f*ckin’ alive and wanting to dance your socks off.
Get ready to get down. Prepare for Confidence Man to wrap you round their finger. Don’t you wish you had some Bubblegum? You've got it now.
Confidence Man - Bubblegum
