Bio

Pluto Jonze is a producer, songwriter and performer who has established himself as a unique voice in Sydney’s Indie-Psych-Pop scene.

Following triple J and US college radio hits Plastic Bag in a Hurricane and Eject from his debut album (2013), and the Sucker EP (2014), Pluto embarked on several years of collaboration, touring and producing with artists ranging from Ball Park Music, Jungle Giants, Not a Boys Name, Megan Washington, Delta Riggs, Lime Cordiale to Cub Sport, and in 2016 he performed on JJJ’s Like A Version.

2019 will finally bear the fruit of Pluto’s explorations with the first glimpses of his sophomore album Awe - 4 years in the making. Written around piano rather than the more familiar guitar riffs, Awe is a true evolution, an epic dreamscape, influenced as much by romantic composers Debussy, Erik Satie, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, as by Indie Psych modern greats Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Beck, Tobias Jesso Jnr, Tame Impala and Todd Terje.

Listen to I’ll Try Anything, the first single from his upcoming record and one thing is clear - Pluto Jonze is back.

Cinematic pop executed with utter class. Love the unhurried pace and the myriad production touches that all fit together so tidily.

It's like AIR did a theme song for James Bond and I'm 100% here for it.
