Bio

Hailing from Brisbane, First Beige draws upon driving disco grooves, sweeping synths and irresistible vocal hooks to craft a full-bodied sonic spectacular guaranteed to get any crowd grooving. An infectious live act taking inspiration from the likes of Jamiroquai, Flying Lotus, Parcels and Kaytranada; the six-piece have continued to solidify themselves as one of the rawest, most energetic and vibrant live acts to come out of Brisbane in recent years.

With bedroom roots dating back to early 2016, the project began as the solo project of David Versace, writing, recording and producing the arrangements before bringing the tracks to the band to further expand upon. After releasing their first EP ‘Press!’ in the summer of 20(17) the band’s unique sound began to turn heads. Their groove driven and evolving split single ‘Vivid/Images’ premiered to a sold out Foundry and they took their first ever tour down the east coast.

‘Details’ sees First Beige further foray into the house / jazz melting pot. Moody uncertainty lifts to resolve and confidence reigns supreme. There’s spacey saxophone journeys, horror movie strings and a pulse of conviction. The track is First Beige’s first release of an exciting 2019.

First Beige is David Versace, Troy Doolan, Jasper Gunderson, Julia Beiers, Cain Robertson and Oscar Borschmann.
