The Belafontes (Paul and Jess) is a husband-and-wife duo from Melbourne, Australia. Not too long ago, they released a lovely alternative-rock tune, entitled, “Big Man”.

The Belafontes – “Big Man” single

“We all know a big man. He’s the kind of guy who hangs around way too late at the end of parties and refuses to let the dream die. He’s the one who tells you he can speak another language, but only really knows how to say hello and goodbye, which are the same word. Also, he works a 9-5 in a suit, but gets loose with the boys and traps you in a ‘deep’ conversation at 1 AM.” – The Belafontes

‘Big Man’ contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation scented with a lo-fi-alternative-rock aroma.

“‘Big Man’ is our ode to big men everywhere, and their big-noting ways. It was inspired by a particularly big man in our life who shows up when we least expect it to ruin our day. But you can go ahead and apply it to all the big men out there who make your life just a little bit crappier.” – The Belafontes

The Belafontes is a name you should remember and an exciting band to watch.

The pair started playing together as a wedding present—learning love songs for a sibling’s nuptial celebration. That eventful moment quickly turned into sitting around their op shop organ and playing soul classics late at night.

After realizing they could write their own love songs, they started making happy music that will make you love life. Instead of bringing you the harsh realities of your own existence, they pack as much joy as they can into 2-3 minutes of guitar-slinging sunshine.
