If Fidlar and Son House had a weird genius baby that was best friends with Peter Bibby, it would be this band. Absolutely bloody brilliant.” – Bridget Leila, Off Tap Records
Matt Bourke and The Delusional Drunks are finally ready to host a launch of their own for their debut single. With a festival appearance at Meadow Music Festival and a launch show at The Old Bar on the 2nd of April with support from Vasco Era frontman Sid O’neil and Emilee South, Matt Bourke and the Delusional Drunks will be in full form to release ‘An Ode To My Future.’
Drawing inspiration from artists such as The Drones, Grinderman and East Brunswick All Girls Choir, Matt Bourke has created his own blend of dirty, blues-driven rock ‘n’ roll. Originally born as a party band, the Delusional Drunks bring a raw and uncontrollable energy to the stage, whilst still remaining as a tight knit workhorse, working towards building a wall of organised chaos.
Bourke’s song writing style is often tongue-in-cheek, at times pushing the boundaries of society norms and lyrical traditions. Drawing upon personal experiences and expanding the truth to create a captivating story, the tales range from stories of growing up in a small country town to murderous child snatchers ravaging a whole village. You never know where you’ll end up in the twisted song writing of the Delusional Drunks.
After making the move from the isolated town of Aireys Inlet to cut their teeth in the Melbourne music circuit, the band are steadily building a loyal fan base, making their way through Melbourne’s dingiest venues.
