About

Perth-based Auslan-embracing band Alter Boy is a six-person powerhouse of queerlectro pop, comprising three deaf/hard-of-hearing members championing inclusivity, accessibility, and empowerment.

Celebrated for transforming the traditional perception of pop, Alter Boy’s combination of chaotic live performances featuring transgender, disabled bodies and carefully considered, unique uniforms serve the band’s collective motivation to challenge the music industry’s status quo and influence a new relationship with music.

Alter Boy will be supported by local band The Morsels.

Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre.

Banding together within the Perth deaf community in 2019, Molly/Aaron (Vocals), Jack Meakins and Laura Bullock (Auslan Signers) drew inspiration to create a music project to rid misconceptions of their connection to music and promote inclusivity.

Channeling James Blake, Banks, and London Grammar, Alter Boy mastered their 2020 musical output: Bad Dream Break In, Glitter, and Section 504, and their signature lyrics conveying hope and purpose married with intricate melodies and whispered vocals extends to their new single, ‘Act of God’.

Referencing the unjust socio-political system operating under the guise of a punishing God or apparent misfortune, Act of God explores the internalisation of systematic issues for deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals.

Specifically, Act of God delves into the childhood experience of band member Jack who, like many other deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals, was unable to find his supportive community – where one can call home.
