Bio

PLTS (pronounced pilots) are an indie rock band hailing from Byron Bay, Australia.
Having worked with JP Fung (Birds of Tokyo, Art VS Science, Josh Pyke) and Nick Didia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen) to produce their take on energetic indie-rock, PLTS have quickly cemented their status through powerful, anthemic song writing.

Released independently, their small but dynamic catalogue has clocked up over 3 million streams online, in turn attracting a loyal following both locally and across the country. Coupled with support from Triple J, the band entered into the live space supporting the likes of The Jezabels, Hands Like Houses, and The Amity Affliction, as well as joining the lineup of tastemaker festival Splendour In The Grass.

Weaving warm melodies over strong and stirring guitar lines, PLTS are converting new friends and fans as they turn studio creations into energetic, nostalgic anthems. 2018 sees the band expand their discography once again with the release of their latest offering ‘Maelstrom’.

Still baffling to me that this band aren't doing arena shows with Foo Fighters yet. This is stadium-bound rock.
