Becoming quickly renowned for their charged live shows and all round electric sound, Balancing Act’s recent debut headline tour saw them sell out their dates at London’s Oslo and Manchester’s Deaf Institute, before heading to Bristol and Birmingham for the first time. This tour was one of many 2023 successes on the live side – the year opened with sold out headlines at London's Lower Third and Manchester's YES Basement, before they performed for The Close Encounter Club.
2023 brought further success by way of radio support, with Balancing Act being featured as the ‘Next Wave’ on Radio 1’s Future Artists, and their most recent single ‘Cheshire Smile featured on both Radio 1’s Indie Show and BBC Radio 6 as the show’s ‘Indiependence Play’. After gaining traction following their debut EP last November, Balancing Act have become something of a key name in “ones to watch” discussions, being included in Dork’s Hype List, DIY’s NEU Bulletin, and branded a contender for “the new generation’s favourite band” by Jack Saunders.
Self-described as “Dark, Sexy, and Sick”, Balancing Act can be more officially affiliated with the world of alternative rock. Dynamic and atmospheric, the 3 singles this year have marked a turn towards sonic grandeur and maturity, and the band have been gradually settling into a wider scale, cinematic delivery which suits them well.
