Bio

Husband and wife team The Belafontes make the sound of 5 people in a 2-piece band. Their signature back and forth lyrics and harmonies define their love soaked garage rock sound. They make music that will make you happy: They stand apart from their contemporaries in Melbourne by writing music that makes you love life. Instead of bringing you the harsh realities of your own existence (there’s plenty of bands out there for that), The Belafontes pack as much joy as they can into 2-3 minutes of guitar slinging sunshine. It’s not just good music; it’s good for you.

Ready made for a bratty lo-fi bedroom video, jumping on beds and blowing bubblegum. AKA isolation life 101. The 'hey hey hey!' sections are going to stomp so hard when you're able to play live again.
