It’s been a massive year for Brisbane three-piece Good Boy from opening Laneway at the start of the year to grabbing the attention of many at Big Sound Festival in September and let’s not forget when the boys live streamed the moments of being stuck in the middle of nowhere when on tour earlier this year. On Friday night the Brissy outfit took to the Elsewhere stage for the release of their Plum EP with support from Gold Coast Locals Killer Trunk Hunks and Not Lenny.
Opening with Sycophant the boy’s performance did not disappoint, their studio to live show performance translates seamlessly. With their catchy riffs with lyrics to match, that are oh so relatable for every twenty something that spends their days stressin’ about uni and nights drinking beer. Backing it up with some killer tracks off Plum such as Ya Mum’s Ya Dad and Millie with a more stripped back sound different from what the trio have previously put out. Hearing some tunes off their EP No Love for Back Home such as Higher and Transperency it really highlighted the eclectic style and diversity that they bring to their music. Closing the night with their track Poverty Line you could crowd singing every line with self-assured grins brought on by the undeniably familiar situation the lyrics describe.
The live performance revealed to the crowd as to what the band is really like, three friends up on stage having a go with a little cheek and a whole lot of character. It’ll be interesting to see the bands future movements after what we have seen so far.
