Bio

++ NEW EP #petrifiedheart coming soon ++

MT WARNING released his 2014 debut album to rave reviews and played all over the world including Australia’s Splendour In The Grass, Laneway Festival, SXSW and UK’s Field Day. He supported The Temper Trap, Circa Waves and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. Airplay included Triple J, FBI, US college radio and BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe “Next Hype”.

Growing up in Shepparton, Mikey left the country at 16 for Melbourne to pursue a life in music. The distractions of city life led him to find a new home in Byron Bay, a base where he could tour from and then disappear into cities around the world, from NYC, London to Hamburg.

The new EP Petrified Heart” is a letter. It's a confession and an apology, it's an affirmation and a commitment to love, it's catharsis in the truest sense.

Mikey’s thoughts on writing this EP: "I needed to face myself alone and work by myself alone. I needed to dance by myself alone. I wanted to hear my own voice as it naturally sounds and make music that moves me, both in tempo and emotion”.

I'm not totally won over by the song, but I love the way it sounds. It creates a really great mood and hopefully this'll all be channelled into great songs to come.

The National does come to mind a little. But what I like most about this track is the mix of starkness, then chaos in the instrumentation. It's not a great song, but all the elements are there and I'm intrigued to hear a few more of their songs after hearing this one.

Got me from the first few notes. Unique sound, thoughtful lyrics. I'll be listening out for more of MT's stuff
