Brisbane’s melancholic pop masters Ball Park Music are made of five curious
minds that thrive on musical experimentation. Their inventiveness is akin to
that of UK supergroup Superorganism’s playful collaboration; the Avalanches’
ability to synchronise diverse genres, and Elliott Smith’s knack for carrying
sadness with an honest wit.
It's been a tremendous journey since the five-piece formed in 2008 while
studying music at university. In seven years, they’ve produced five albums –
the last four having consecutively debuted in the top 10 of the ARIA charts.
The band continue to sell out bigger venues each time they tour and regularly
appear on the Australian festival circuit, including Falls Festival, Groovin The
Moo and Splendour in the Grass.
In 2018, their fifth record GOOD MOOD debuted at #6 on the ARIA chart and
received ARIA Award nominations for Best Cover Art, Best Producer and Best
Engineer. The euphoric single ‘Exactly How You Are’ landed at #18 on triple
j’s Hottest 100 of 2017. With ‘Hands Off My Body’s punk-heavy exploration of
self-image, and the poetic, endearing introspection of ‘I Am A Dog’, Ball Park Music have
pushed themselves into new territory yet again.
Their national tour with San Cisco saw them play the biggest venues of their
career, taking on hometown venue the Riverstage, Big Top in Sydney,
Fremantle Arts Centre and selling out Festival Hall in Melbourne.
