Bio

Based in the Australian beachside paradise of Byron Bay, PLTS (pronounced 'Pilots') have been on a beautiful artistic evolution since forming in 2012. Clocking in over three and a half million streams, PLTS are the archetype for independent music: they appeal to practically everyone, and answer to absolutely no one. They don't need to compromise. Instead, PLTS find strength in honesty and the diversity it inspires in their music. Each stage of their development has brought further exploration and discovery – from dancefloor indie beats, to punk rock guitar tones, to the alluring vocal timbre of soul – all within the band's innate knack for writing larger-than-life songs.

Their growth as a band has gone hand-in-hand with the esteemed company they keep. The early days saw them hitting the road with the likes of Wolfmother and British India, and finding a kindred spirit in producer JP Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Art Vs Science, Josh Pyke) who helped the band take their songwriting to the next level. With him, PLTS found their confidence and sonic polish, releasing a swag of high fidelity, anthemic singles bursting with new sounds and ideas – from the shimmer and sleekness of Call Me Out to the soaring power of Astoria and the rolling On & On.

I have unhappy seconds when I heard some 30 Seconds to Mars creeping through followed by more positive Violent Soho references that make me feel ok again. Once you hear this chorus, you'll have a hard time extricating it from your dome over the next month.

Yeah that's a real super-slo-mo-crowd-surfing-while-ripping-a-solo type of chorus you've got there
