Bio

The Australian prince of indie-pop broke through with his ukulele anthem 'Stupid' in 2013 and debut E.P. 'funbang1.' The 2016 release sparked three singles including Tectonic and Free To Love while gathering global controversy for his music video House of Air which the New Yorker quoted, "Should never be viewed in any public setting."

Likened to a lofi meeting of Robyn and Talking Heads, Brendan released his first LP titled, And The Boyfriends in 2019. The album, his first entry in the ARIA Top 20 Album Charts, saw him exploring more complex lyricism with a newfound subtlety in his vocal performance, built upon his atypically brilliant observational wit and wordplay.
