It’s been a whirlwind 2015 for Brisbane indie-psychedelic supergroup The Belligerents, most recently coming to the attention of the nation with a jaw dropping rendition of Fat Boy Slims “Praise You” for Triple J’s Like a Version. The re-imagination even got Fat Boy Slim him self talking, retweeting the video with a “LOVE THIS COVER!” and “GREAT WORK!”.
"It’s no small feat to execute a quality cover of this timeless tune with live instruments. Everything from that unforgettable piano hook to those droning breakdowns has been taken care of. Well done, boys." - Tone Deaf
With the success of their last two singles “In My Way” and “Voices” receiving high rotation on Triple J and community radio across the country, there is no holding back The Belligerents.
2015 saw the release of their 3 rd EP; Outside:Inside. “Outside:Inside” see’s the Brisbane 5 piece truly come into their own, developing sonically from their early indie dance sound, now riding a wave of psychedelic explosions reminiscent of King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Tame Impala and Pond, yet remaining distinctive with their raw and experimental sound.
Their debut LP will be recorded by band member, producer and engineer Konstantin Kersting. The band will travel to a nearby farmhouse, with full studio production. Taking two vans full of equipment, this album will be a testament to the band’s growth and ability to experiment and produce in-house.
