Originally starting as an ‘electronic dance music project’ the Whitest Boy Alive have now fully evolved into a 4 piece live band with no programmed elements at all. And while the instruments resemble that of many an indie band, the approach they employ on stage creates something truly unique.
With Kraftwerk’s precision and the melodic-pop sensibility of Phoenix, Erlend Øyé’s band The Whitest Boy Alive creates sweet, highly danceable numbers and an enigmatic live presence that is known for shaking dance floors around the world. Having released two albums already, they’re keen to get people moving in Oz and have recruited Mitzi and Cadillac as support for the Melbourne dates and Mitzi and Gung Ho to help hold down the Brisbane fort. Sydney has New Navy and the Future Classic DJs and Perth is full to the brim with bros!
