Bio

BATTS is the project of Melbourne based musician and space enthusiast Tanya Batt. Creating a blend of folk and rock, whilst weaving in samples collected from space missions courtesy of NASA, throughout her music.

BATTS has been touring Australia the past few years building up a resume of local and international supports with Sharon Van Etten, Lucius, The Teskey Brothers, The Magic Numbers, Nilüfer Yanya, Leif Vollebekk, Jess Cornelius, Didirri, and many more. In 2018 BATTS embarked on her first international tour to the UK, supporting Cub Sport and also playing shows with Communion Music and Sounds Australia.

A strong obsession with space and novels help inspire the concepts and writing within BATTS music. Creating soundscapes that take you on a journey, BATTS recently collaborated with the Planetarium in Melbourne to create a visual experience to accompany her debut album ‘The Grand Tour’, which was released into the world on April 12, 2019 through THAA Records and is a concept album based around NASA’s 1977 ‘Voyager’ mission.

BATTS Space Fact - Saturn is less dense than water so if there were a bathtub big enough to hold it, Saturn would float.

Another stirring work from BATTS! There's a heartbreaking solitude to this track which she builds so perfectly.

This is such a dreamy song, and your voice is so beautifully front and centre while sounding like it's all around me. Gorgeous stuff.

I like the way BATTS writes. Since she released her debut last year, she seems to be on some kind of magical trajector towards her unique brand.
