Bio

Three boys hailing from the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Funk Dancing For Self Defence have all the hallmarks of a great alternative rock band. Infectious melodic hooks, loud mosh-worthy riffs, kick ass drums and a bass sound more fuzzy than a 60's issue of Playboy.

Funk Dancing For Self Defence strike a balance between gritty punk rock riffage and polished 90’s alternative reminiscent of bands like Nirvana and Green Day.

Melbourne's Mr. blue sky for sure. I have tried dancing in self-defence and it works very effectively not sure if that's because my limbs don't move predictably or if i'm cutting that hectic of a shape.
