LIVE REVIEW: Polish Club – The Triffid

Polish Club never fail to deliver high energy, ridiculous banter and good vibes, and the Brisbane stop on their ‘Live! For A Minute Tour’ was the perfect embodiment of that. Playing the first of two shows at The Triffid on a rowdy Friday night, the Sydney based duo and their touring band walked on stage to Bernard Fanning’s ‘Wish You Well’ blasting over the sound system. Sharing that the band were nearly late to the stage because lead singer David Novak was taking a shit, they showed the audience the level of candidness this gig would entail before they even started playing the first song. 

Ready to deliver their signature punchiness straight away, they opened their set with new single ‘Stop For A Minute’. And from there they deep dived into their two albums and three EP’s with ‘Iguana’, ‘Beeping’, ‘Don’t Fuck Me Over’ and ‘Just Talking’ making early appearances. 

Premiering a new song which fell into the category of one of their more emotional tendered releases, they then segued into their recent Live A Version cover of Doja Cat’s ‘Say So’. Novak’s vocals continually got stronger throughout the show, and had many moments where you looked at your friends and went “wow”. And then ‘Come Party’ put a spotlight on their electrifying live band with a sax solo that had the crowd screaming for more.

Closing out the set with ‘Breakapart’, ‘Divided’ and ‘Clarity’ they thanked the crowd for coming out and partying with them in standing mode again. Delivering pure good vibes, their hour set was a whole lot of fun and preluded to the fun they’re ready to keep having with more new music scheduled in for later this year.
