Sydney rock/pop outfit PLANET is the culmination of several years of trial and error in songcraft, performance and production. Matty Took (vox and rhythm), Tom Peppitt (lead guitar), Harrison Stewart-Weeks (drums) and Jimmy Weaver (bass) were first brought together by their shared love of music: old and new, foreign and domestic. Drawing influences from past and present the four-piece combine pop laden guitar hooks with soaring vocal melodies. The result is a sound which is reminiscent of Britpop but remains undeniably Australian.
The band made their UK & EU debut recently, playing support for DMA’s as well as a few of their own headline shows. While there, they also recorded a gorgeous live acoustic rendition of their new track ‘You, Just A Little More’, which premiered via Clash in the UK.
Debut EP ‘Waking Eight’ has been recently released, and the boys toured it around the East Coast tour of Australia in June.
