The Belafontes – Desk Job

Melbourne’s The Belafontes have a new EP out collating their past couple of single releases (Big Man and Steppin’ Out) and a few new tracks.

It’s two of the new tracks (or new to me) here that get me jumping around. 8 Bit Town is catchy, thrashy punk with the protagonist seeking departure from “this backwards town” whilst Tired deals with the monotony of everyday working life. They could well be the best tracks the band have laid down so far.

Seafood is another punk-pop song where the villains are not partial to someone different whilst final track Portland sounds like it takes it cues from 1960’s cartoons/family shows whilst the vocals and numerous yeah, yeah, yeah’s should get you bopping along nicely.

Desk Job is, like all their releases to date, enjoyable and fun. You can get it digitally from the band.
