Perth young guns Mosquito Coast are releasing their debut EP 'Television Love' in Australia and New Zealand this Friday 16 December. The new six-track record will be available for sale via www.mosquitocoast.com.au and digitally at online stores (independent).
Filled with breezy pop melodies, sun-bleached guitar and dreamy vocals, the EP includes a new single (also called) 'Television Love', which premiered last night on triple j's 'New Music with Richard Kingsmill 2016'.
Naomi Robinson and Conor Barton were just 17-years-old when they caught the attention of fans, tastemakers and the music biz after winning triple j’s Unearthed High 2015 and placing #101 in this year’s Hottest 100 with their ethereal single ‘Call My Name’.
Following their big win the duo released two more singles - ‘Commotion’ and ‘Let’s Be Friends’, which were both added to rotation on triple j; were nominated for ‘Most Popular Act’ in the WAMAwards 2016, and commissioned by PerthNow (The Sunday Times) to write a song for their 10th birthday celebrations that was exhibited in the Art Gallery of WA. They were also included in the ‘100 best discoveries of the last decade’ by triple j Unearthed.
‘Television Love’ was recorded at REC Studios Sydney, produced by good friend Carl Fox (Porsches), engineered by Tom Garnett, mixed by Jack Moffitt (The Preatures), and mastered by Andrew Edgson at Studios 301.
To promote the record, Naomi, Conor and their two band mates are heading out an 11-date national tour in February/March 2017, playing capital cities and regional centres across the country - see dates below.
