Bio

Alter Boy is a Queerlectro Pop group from Perth. This dance band queerifies religious iconography in a theatrical whirl of performance art, choreography and costume. Three of its members are Deaf/ Hard-of-Hearing and all songs are performed in Auslan (Australia Sign Language). Expect a sex-positive, queer euphoric slant on lobotomies, divorcing Jesus, dressing gay, death anxiety, penis envy and more.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Here we have five heavenly boys. From left to right: The serious boy. Silver cap, black spectacles, painted red lips and blue tears streaming down his perfect face. He wears a faux-fur coat and a blue speedo suit. Next is the peacock. “Fuck me” hair, the wise old eyes of a hoary crow, sparkling golden beard and deep purple lips. The golden eyebrows of a man ready to rise to the dance. In the middle we have a cute boy of the future in long green gloves and a shiny black suit with a sweet pencil moustache, red lips and a powder-white face. To his right is the party boy in silver cap and matching silver jacket. Sweet red glasses hover above his bright purple beard and his chest hair is exposed because is wild wild wild beyond your dreams. On the right is the pretty boy. Short blue wig with smattering of soft blue and pink eye makeup and hot pink lips. A beautiful transparent pink dress. He is not wearing any shoes: can somebody get this sweet boy some shoes.

It's reminding me of some of the best, slightly darker sides of Scandi pop. It's understated and cool and no less a banger for being a bit of a backseat vibe.

when this one takes off at about 1:50 i swear i was flying for a bit. maybe because it's on the brain, but this feels a bit like a song from the darker, more experimental spinoff of eurovision.

if a genie popped up in front of me right now, i'd have my three wishes sorted - to raid your wardrobes, to see you perform this live and to hear a whole lot more from you in 2020.
