Triplespeak and Smith’s proudly present Steve Balbi – Live ‘n’ Eclectic – for one night only at Smith’s, with special guest TBC.
Celebrating the digital release of his new record, I Think I Know For Sure, Steve Balbi will perform an exclusive show, in intimate, acoustic mode, featuring songs from his new record, alongside reimagined out-takes, hit picks and favourites from a colourful catalogue of words and music that includes Noiseworks, Electric Hippies, 1980s new-wavers Mi-Sex, and more.
The COVID takedown has meant many things to many people. For the creative chameleon, Steve Balbi, it was time to peel-back yet another layer of skin to reveal an entirely new pigment – an iridescent sunburst that is orange in colour, melody and tone – taking time in his home studio to compose a new fabric of songs, I Think I Know For Sure. It is out now on CD and Limited Edition 12” vinyl.
From Friday the 12th of February, you can download and stream the new record, I Think I Know For Sure, here: https://ffm.to/itikfs and watch the video ‘Wonderful’ here: WONDERFUL [Director’s Cut]
Reflecting upon living in isolation, Balbi concedes:
“It allowed me to sit back, slow down and take stock, while it became increasingly clear to me what really matters. Simply, family, friends and creativity are my world. I willingly went back to basics and was inspired to make a body of work that echoes the music that inspired me as a child. It feels as though this record has been waiting for me for years. And it’s the opposite of what seems to be popular right now. Perhaps for that reason alone, I love it even more. I think I know for sure.”
