MTNS are heading out on their first national headline tour after racking up 179,000+ Soundcloud plays on their debut EP Salvage.

The EP premiering on US tastemaker blog Earmilk was just a cap on a very eventful 2013, which also included the band’s getting the attention of ears at home and abroad, with Indie Shuffle championing both singles, and Triple J adding Lost Track Of Time to rotation.

MTNS also managed to strike out from their hometown, with support slots with Kite String Tangle, Wolf And Cub, Tigertown, Andy Bull, and Pigeon as well as winning the Triple J Unearthed BIGSOUND competition.

MTNS-Brick_2(300dpi)With the EP presenting such smooth and relaxing ambient tunes, it’s nearly impossible to picture this Brisbane band arriving on the scene as boldly as they have. On release of their first track Lost Track Of Time in July 2013, it quickly garnered attention with 40,000 Soundcloud plays in the first week, and held reign of the #1 spot on Indie Shuffle’s Most Popular list. Following the massive, unexpected international success of the single, Australian radio followed suit.

Having played only a handful of live concerts, MTNS again surprised audiences with their unique, captivating and unexpectedly commanding live performance, showcasing their ability to create an expansive hybrid of tones, beats, lyrics and textures – exceeding the brilliance showcased on their studio recordings.

See MTNS tonight Friday February 7 in Byron Bay at the Byron Bay Brewery.
