Ben Dalton (Born Joy Dead)

From the mind of Ben Dalton—former Hungry Kid of Hungary—Born Joy Dead have been greeted with praise since their inception in 2014, and have continued to impress. With their debut EP already under their collective belt, brand new tune Chains on You marks the culmination of ambitious singles, a smattering of air time, interstate shows and a heck of a year as a band.

This intricately layered sweet treat features the backing vocals of John Steel Singers’ Scott Bromley and Luke McDonald, as well as the charm and spontaneous songwriting the quartet have become graciously known for. With the ability to write hard-driven, agile and refined rock, Brisbane’s Born Joy Dead are fast becoming an outfit to be counted.

Their debut single Upside Down, Inside Out made a great impression among tastemakers and introduced national audiences to their honest rock sound. Then came Hey Blood, the ballsy ‘romping, stomping indie rock track complete with wailing guitars, a gorgeous beat, and a full-blown singalong chorus’ (Indie Shuffle). Ears the world over have likened Born Joy Dead to a collision of The Beach Boys and Dinosaur Jr (God Is In The TV, UK), while their live presence has placed them comfortably on stages with Ball Park Music, Hey Geronimo, Pepa Knight (of Jinja Safari), Rolls Bayce and Bad//Dreems.
