MTNS is a brand new project out of Brisbane; the trio (Tom Eggert, Joseph Thiang, Robbie Hellberg) are trying their hand at the ambient electronic pop genre currently booming in Australia. There isn't too much background info on these guys (trust me, I'm a pretty decent stalker), but based on their first offering, MTNS won't be unknown for too long.
Their single "Lost Track of Time" has already been added to rotation on Triple J (a big deal for a new act), and it's not hard to see why initial responses have been outstanding. It's an icy electronic track that I think will appeal to a wide segment of music fans. It's not quite dark pop, but it's got an extraterrestrial vibe to it made all the more intriguing by the almost gender-less vocals from Eggert.
A very impressive intro for MTNS, and I for one can't wait for new material... and perhaps more of a backstory, too!
