Bio

Brendan Maclean is the sparkling indie pop star Australia desperately needs.

A master of the literal biting lyric that sits on the tip of your tongue, cropping up in conversation and is pasted across Facebook walls weeks. His original songs, with their shamelessly flamboyant tunes, have worked their way from YouTube to the Opera House to the studio of acclaimed producer Paul Mac (Silverchair / The Dissociatives).

"Like a modern day Mick Jagger" - Baz Luhrmann
"Fucking amazing." - Amanda Palmer
"Brilliant." - Solange.

Brendan is set to head out on a national tour with Chance Waters in April.

So many pop asplosions! Great songwriting again, some strange and wonderful sounds. I like that your "bold" voice also relaxes a little on this song too. Sparkles!
