Brilliant at Breakfast formed out of a series of curious coincidences. The band aims to take bedroom musicianship further with cheap instruments, cookies and coffee, and riddles with no answers.
The band is influenced by Sarah Records bands, Amelia Fletcher, Scottish and Swedish pop bands, as well as the writings of Lewis Carroll, e.e.cummings and Lemony Snicket. The result is perky, childish, whimsical songs with themes ranging from comic book superheroes and Greek mythology, to the more mundane things of everyday life (end-of-vacation blues, intoxicating drinks, sugary drinks and unrequited crushes).
They are currently based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, missing the equator by just about a few hundred kilometers — not that it matters.
