Confidence Man is stepping out with a new record deal and fresh tunes now that Covid-19 lockdowns have been lifted down under.
Announced Wednesday, October 27, Billboard reports that the Australian indie electronic act signs with I OH YOU, the red-hot label whose roster includes DMA’S, Jack River, Violent Soho and DZ Deathrays.
The new deal comes ahead of “Holiday,” the first track lifted from Confidence Man’s forthcoming sophomore album.
Expect this “Holiday” to blow your hair back. “We’ve been wanting to try a ‘hands in the air’ banger forever. Everybody does. It’s quite difficult,” frontman Sugar Bones explains. “But for some reason, this song has dropped out of the heavens.”
Self-produced, and mixed by Ewan Pearson, “Holiday” was “pretty much perfect from the get-go,” he notes.
“Holiday” is due out Nov. 11. Confidence Man “embody everything an I OH YOU artist should,” comments label founder Johann Ponniah, “they make music we love, they’re ambitious, they challenge themselves and their audience, and they have an unwavering commitment to their vision. To officially welcome them to the I OH YOU family today is an absolute joy.”
I OH YOU, winner of best independent label at the 2021 ARIA Awards and an affiliate Mushroom Group, represents Confidence Man for Australia and New Zealand. The outfit remains with Heavenly/PIAS for U.K., Europe and North America and with Zync/Round Hill publishing worldwide (excluding ANZ).
