Bio

Alter Boy is a Queerlectro Pop band from Perth, WA. Four 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: Four people sitting on a sequence of chairs in a gothic warehouse, a great bellowing blue light in the distance. The people wailing and throwing their arms into the air. The shadows of their feet crept across the ground like the branches of trees in a chilling gust.

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.
