Bio

Alter Boy is a Queerlectro Pop band from Perth, WA. Three of its members are Deaf/ Hard-of-Hearing and all songs are performed in Auslan (Australian Sign Language). Expect shiny, dark pop with chaotic performance art and Deaf/trans bodies.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: three band members leaning against one another on a smoky blue background. At the back stands a tall king in a crown and white robe, he is white and fat, his eyes are softly closed as if in prayer, his arms are raised and his hand are facing upward. Leaning against him on the right is a tired small white blonde person, shirtless with four large baby milk bottles strapped to their chest like a grenades. On the left is a stocky white butch with short hair, shirtless with top surgery scars and tattoos, and leather bib. Photo by Jarrad Levy

Alter Boy sound like art. This one's got this rich balance between mystery, darkness and sweetness. It's intriguing and the atmosphere this song creates lures you in close. Very excited for you all to be next week's feature artist.

This song is such a wonderful fistful of melodies, layered vocals and intricate production choices that cut to the quick for me. Beautiful, moving, magical.
