Conceived in Brisbane, First Beige draws upon driving disco grooves, sweeping synths and irresistible vocal hooks to craft a full-bodied sonic spectacular guaranteed to get any crowd grooving. An infectious live act taking inspiration from the likes of Flying Lotus, Parcels and Kaytranada; the six-piece have continued to solidify themselves as one of the rawest, most energetic and vibrant live acts to come out of Brisbane in recent years.
Since their inception, First Beige has come a long way from a bedroom recording project of founding member David Versace in 2016. Four years, two EP’s, two East Coast tours and a QLD Music Award nomination later and the Brisbane 6-piece continue to impress crowds nationwide.
Their sets at BIGSOUND Music Festival and Conference 2019 were highly acclaimed, with Deafen County saying, “judging by the movement in the crowd, everyone is in favour of their funk” and Scenestr saying, “The set has everything, from dreamy, drawn-out guitar solos, to snappy snares, to a triangle appearance”.
The band have hit the ground running in 2020, opening Brisbane’s Laneway festival, announcing appearances at Party In The Paddock, A Festival Called Panama, Nine Lives and Meadow Festival, as well as shows in Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney, Yamba and the Gold Coast. Following up from their second EP ‘Mirrors’, First Beige are already hard at work in the studio, continuously evolving their sound with the same core objective to get feet moving and faces smiling.
