Bio

Alter Boy is a newly formed Queerlectro-pop group from Perth. Two of the bands members are Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing. Live shows comprise theatrical performance, costume and Australian sign language.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Five shirtless boys and men stand and sit upon stacks of wooden chairs like cows awaiting a sweet slaughter, their fleshy tops coming together to form one meaty body, but each delicious in his own way. One chubby boy looking drugged up in a pale blue wig with bright blue and pink eye shadow and pink lipstick. One holding a hand across his body like a virgin sword, wearing three dots of pale blue on each of his cheeks like tears but he has grieved enough and he is almost laughing now. One smaller boy at the back in gold hot pants, silver face of makeup and pencil moustache and he is peering out knowing every part of you or wanting to know it. One with golden brows and long glitter beard and purple lipstick, holding his own soft wrist as if dominating and submitting to himself all at once. One at the front in a short purple beard and hairy chest, looking up at God but God is not looking back. It appears as though they all might have mysteriously disappeared and this was the last photo taken of them. But they have not disappeared and they have made something new. Photo credit: Matt Sav

this is wild and unpredictable and has this unorthodox beauty to it.

Alter Boy tracks are like reaching into the favourites box - you're not sure if you're gonna pull out something gooey n' glitchy or an alt-pop caramel and nuts concoction. All you know is that it's gonna be tasty.

The suspense in this song is key. Had my heart in my throat, beating in sync with that kick drum.
