Confidence Man channels Vengaboys on pop anthem ‘Firebreak’

Australian indie pop music legends are back with another banger, but this time, members Reggie Goodchild and Clarence McGuffie take centre stage in ‘Firebreak’.

The Aussie quartet, usually fronted by vocalists Janet Planet and Sugar Bones, released their debut album ‘Confident Music for Confident People’ back in 2018, and have since been travelling the world performing their iconic live shows.

The ‘TILT’ album released last year has been growing in popularity and has made Confidence Man one of the most well-known and most loved dance groups in the world today. 

‘Firebreak’ is the first release of new Confidence Man music since their second album, released last year. And after the success of the single ‘Now U Do’ with DJ Seinfeld, Con Man gave the fans what they wanted, another epic single. Confidence Man has been performing ‘Firebreak’ throughout all of their summer shows, to much success. Each and every time the Con Man DJs played this track the audience was electric, making it the perfect single for them to release and already a firm favourite with fans.  

The track itself screams inspiration from the likes of the Vengaboys, with its preppy energy and dance beat that almost pulls you into a cheesy nightclub. The catchy and repetitive sounds are similar to those you’d find in an arcade with whistles and high-pitched beeps; this creates a colourful, party atmosphere when you listen to it.  

The track displays Confidence Man’s production talent at its finest, particularly the way they play with differing rhythms and the density of the track throughout. ‘Firebreak’ is also a great introduction to the group itself, particularly for those that enjoy solid dance records. We look forward to seeing what comes next from the group in 2024, as well as the likely success of ‘Firebreak’ at coming summer festivals.
