The Beamish Boys – Don’t Flatter Yourself

The Beamish Boys are a brothers duo from Toowoomba, QLD (Australia), who sing and song-write, and have just released an acoustic version of their original track Don’t Flatter Yourself, released on Tipsy Records with American producer MKJ in June earlier this year.

In contrast to the electronic-pop setting of the original version, vocal harmonies and lead lines are set atop a relaxed acoustic guitar part and stripped-back drum beat, allowing their voices to shine through the mix and showcase their talent. The song describes a feeling of self-confidence and resistance against someone wanting to take advantage of you, a relatable sentiment for many.

We had a run-in with a particularly unpleasant person in the music industry – who will of course remain nameless – and so writing this song was a very cathartic process for us. Nobody likes to be pushed around and too often artists are taken advantage of. ‘Don’t Flatter Yourself’ is kind of a unifying anthem for all creatives and artists who have ever felt mistreated.” – The Beamish Boys on the inspiration behind the song.
