Bio

PLTS (pronounced Pilots) are an indie-rock band from Byron Bay, Australia. Forming in late 2012, PLTS share a passion for playing honest, feel-good music. The group secured Nick Didia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Karnivool) to cut their first EP at Studio 301, which set up a series of DIY tours around Australia, performing with acts such as Hockey Dad, Harts & Kingswood.

Between 2015-2017, PLTS teamed up with Sydney producer JP Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Art Vs Science, Josh Pyke) to explore and uncover their underlying sound; weaved within a diverse range of influences from punk through to soul.
Through this partnership and hours spent in studio’s between Sydney and Byron Bay, the collaboration bore fruit to anthemic, indie rock singles; ‘On and On’, ‘Astoria’, ‘Call Me Out’ & 'Spill'.

Independently released and backed, the combined releases clocked over 2 million plays on Spotify and paved the way for extensive touring throughout Australia, supporting the likes of The Jezabels, The Amity Affliction and landing a well coveted slot on 2016’s ‘Splendour In the Grass’ and 'BIGSOUND 2017'.

PLTS’s strengths shine in their musical diversity, their determination to own their craft and their mammoth live performances, which is why PLTS are quickly establishing themselves amongst the new breed of Australian rock acts.
