I OH YOU are excited to present Confidence Man’s highly anticipated sophomore album TILT, with a spotlight on their new Balearic single ‘Luvin U Is Easy’. To celebrate the release, the band are throwing a sold-out Full Tilt album launch tonight at Melbourne’s Colour Club. ’Luvin U Is Easy’ is a driving force that comes with a message from the band: “We know u love us. We see it in ur eyes. We hear it in ur tears. We feel it in ur energy. And sure, we can be a little cold. Some might even call us callous. So, here’s one for the lovers. Sit back, relax and enjoy.”
TILT has received praise from the likes of CLASH, Brooklyn Vegan, Rolling Stone UK, NME UK + AU, The Line of Best Fit, Mojo and Dork Mag, adds to triple j and BBC6 and spins on BBC Radio 1, KEXP and Beats 1. ‘Feels Like A Different Thing’ was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday UK while ‘Holiday’ hit 103 in triple j’s hottest 200, with Spotify spins hitting an all-time high on New Year’s Eve (with the track seeing x4 its average daily plays.)
PRAISE FOR TILT“The feel-good hit album of 2022” – Mojo, ★★★★ “From the angelic choirs that introduce it, it’s evident ‘Holiday’ is a different beast. It leans into the sounds of vintage UK dance music; a summer rave-up of acid-soaked keys pulsing over classic house builds and drops.” – triple j “Unapologetic bangers with tongue firmly in cheek and furious, feminist bent, TILT is the album you need in your life.” – Clash Music, 9/10“Obnoxious and charmingly justified in its attitude, this twelve-track ecstasy pill conjures an immortal storm of relentless hype.” – Dork UK “The Brisbane electro-poppers’ second album is more emotionally rounded than its predecessor, but they remain ridiculous in all the right places.” – NME, ★★★★
TILT is the sound of the band testing, stretching and moulding; defining and redefining their parameters, “Wanting to push the boundaries of what Con Man could sound like” as Sugar puts it, “To take it to another dimension.” Like 2018’s Confident Music for Confident People, the self-proclaimed popstars’ distinctly no-frills home recording setup — combined with a readily imbibed, heady mix of Grace Jones, Madonna, The Chemical Brothers, Deee-lite, 90s runway music and archive footage of raves — results in a sleeker, sexier new era of Confidence Man. TILT simultaneously thrums with the electric energies of the club, the NYC ballroom and the warehouse; uniting dancefloors across time and space. Nowhere is this new outlook more apparent than on the aptly titled ‘Feels Like a Different Thing’, a maximalist revelation filled with big beats, even bigger choral interludes, and the age-old directive to work ya damn body HARD. Irresistible pop hooks lurk under cowbells and ingenious self-samples (‘What I Like’) and UK garage-reminiscent vocals about hot, butter-slathered bodies and butt-shaking for pay (Janet-appointed “J-Lo slut-jam” ‘Toy Boy’). Steely anthems about living it up on the go as international party icons (‘Holiday’) melt into loose-lipped, Latin-infused under-a-minuiters (‘Kiss N Tell’), hypnotic eroticas (‘Push It Up’) and undulating, brassy instrumentals (‘Trumpet Song’) that confirm Clarence and Reggie’s fingers are never off the pulse. As echoed by Bráulio Amado (Frank Ocean, Robyn)’s slick album artwork, here is nuanced pop stardom in glorious supersaturation; this latest offering is more Confidence Man than ever before. It is, you might say, Confidence Man at full tilt. Confidence Man embark on their 24-date European tour next month. The massive tour will see them perform at Glastonbury, headline London’s O2 Forum (2400 cap) and support Noel Gallagher. The four-piece return home in July to play Splendour in the Grass before commencing their Australian headline tour, including performances at the Enmore Theatre, Fortitude Music Hall and Northcote Theatre.
