    Confident Music For Confident People is exactly what it says on the tin. It's also the most unashamedly addictive record you'll hear all year.

    They certainly aren’t subtle, but Confidence Man’s broad brush strokes belie a sophisticated and skilful distillation of dance-pop joy.

    With a Balearic pulse and horizontal attitude throughout, this record is ready-made sunshine--MDMAzing pretension-free fun for the masses. This is the album we need in these hard times, even if we don’t deserve it. Put this record on, dance until sunrise, gurn through Brexit and rave until war is over.

    Confidence Man create an album that does more for the listener than the electronic genre, which is a good thing. Listeners put themselves in the shoes of these characters whose control streams from all of these lively beats and vocables.

Not exactly world-changing, but if you're looking for something simple with a lot of energy and a sense of humor, this will hit the spot. Feels like a mash-up of LCD Soundsystem and The Ting Tings.
