Planet

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.


PLANET's most recent efforts have been added to high rotation on Triple J
Unearthed with singles ‘Undermine’ and ‘Can’t Connect’ receiving airplay on
Dom Alessio’s “Home and Hosed” program on Triple J. The band's music has
also reached the shores of the UK with ‘Can’t Connect’ receiving airplay on
XFM’s “This Feeling.” PLANET’s digital footprint is also expanding, receiving
1500+ monthly listeners on Spotify with 90000+ streams for their single
‘Undermine’.


While PLANET remains, for the most part, a staunchly independent labour of
love - all songs being recorded in Matty Took’s bedroom studio - the band
employed producer Lachlan Mitchell (Jezebels, Little Bastard) to add his
touch to their most recent singles as well as their upcoming debut EP. Dave
Ruby Howe of Triple J has said of the band, “Every song feels like a step
forward for them to the point now that they're 10 paces out in front.” Look to
latest release ‘Aimless’ as an indication of what to expect from PLANET’s
next offering which will demonstrate a rapidly developing sound, unique to
this Sydney band.


PLANET haven’t confined themselves solely to the studio though. Having
recently signed with booking agents New World Artists, the boys have been
busy playing a string of dates all over the country. On top of their own
headline shows and a number of festivals (FOTSUN, Lost Paradise, Party in
the Paddock, Blurst of Times) the band have also toured nationally in support
of UK giants James and homegrown indie rock mainstays British India. Fans
can expect the band to be back on the road again in the coming months in
support of their new EP.
