Bio

PLTS (pronounced Pilots) are a four-piece indie-rock band from Byron Bay, Australia.

Forming in late 2012 and drawing from previous band experience and a solid friendship, PLTS was founded around a passion for playing honest, feel-good music. The group secured Nick Didia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Karnivool) to engineer their first EP at Studios 301, which set PLTS up for a series of DIY tours around Australia, performing with acts such as Hockey Dad, Harts & Kingswood.

In 2015 PLTS entered the studio with Sydney producer JP Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Art Vs Science, Josh Pyke) to explore and uncover exciting new elements that would unknowingly push the band to a new stage of development.

With influences from punk through to soul, PLTS’s strengths shine in their musical diversity, backed up by the incredible vocal ability of front-man Kit Bray. Through exploration, PLTS moulded several elements to deliver their 2015 single ‘On & On’. The ever humble four-piece were surprised to see ‘On & On’ become a viral hit on Spotify and land them sold out shows as well as a coveted slot on 2016’s Splendour In The Grass.

In August 2016 the group released their follow up single ‘Astoria’. Thematically, a darker, brooding track, ‘Astoria’ continued on with the band’s high-octane format whilst exposing a dirtier, more intimate side. Partnering again with JP Fung on production duties, 'Astoria' is a captivating showcase of PLTS across catchy melodies and an unforgettable chorus.

Shifting gears with an exciting new tune 'Call Me Out', released just in time for the 2017 Australian summer, PLTS are establishing themselves as one of Australia’s most exciting new rock acts.

Just over a year ago we were thrashing to "On & On" at Shebeen and this is just a stellar way to end what has been an unreal 2016 for you guys. Top notch music coming from some total top notch dudes. Big love.

You cannot write a bad song. Chorus on this one might be your best so far.
