Pluto Jonze is a producer, songwriter and performer who has established himself as a unique voice in Sydney’s Indie-Psych-Pop scene.
Following triple J and US college radio hits Plastic Bag in a Hurricane and Eject from his debut album (2013), and the Sucker EP (2014), Pluto embarked on several years of collaboration, touring and producing with artists ranging from Ball Park Music, Jungle Giants, Not a Boys Name, Megan Washington, Delta Riggs, Lime Cordiale to Cub Sport, and in 2016 he performed on JJJ’s Like A Version.
In 2019 he gained international attention performing his song I’ll Try Anything live on a burning piano.
2020 will see the release of Pluto’s long awaited sophomore album Awe, 4 years in the making. Written around piano rather than the more familiar guitar riffs, Awe is a true evolution, an epic dreamscape, influenced as much by romantic composers Debussy, Erik Satie, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, as by Indie Psych modern greats Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Beck, Tobias Jesso Jnr, Tame Impala and Todd Terje.
The first A/B side - Walk Off The Edge With Me / Kelsey In Corduroy - showcases a darker edge of Pluto’s song writing and production, and features a collaboration with debut guest vocalist Anna Davoll.
“A lot of things to do with this album have been a leap of faith. Exploring all this new territory has taken time to get right but I really feel like finally these tracks are ready for people to climb up on.”
