The former frontman of The Chemist has previously released two independent solo albums (2015’s freak-folk Audio-Illogical Backyard Dog and 2016’s afro-synth pop Future Reset). The latter’s lead single ‘Dead Fish’ received airplay on Triple J and international praise on KCRW as well as extensive community radio airplay reaching #3 on Airit’s Overall Charts and 2nd Most Played Track on RTRFM in 2016.
He has toured nationally/supported acts such as Methyl Ethel, The Drones, Ariel Pink, Stella Donnelly and more.
Praised for his eclectic song-writing and musicianship, Witt has also contributed to Empire Of The Sun’s 'Ice On The Dune', Kevin Parker's (Tame Impala) AAA Ardvaark Getdown Services (with these live sessions later translating into collaborations with Mark Ronson on 2015's 'Uptown Special') and POND’s upcoming studio album. He has also served as a live guitarist for Bob Evans (Jebediah) and Nicholas Allbrook (Pond/Tame Impala) respectively. 2016 also saw Witt travel to Los Angeles to contribute as a co-writer/instrumentalist for the upcoming record from The Sleepy Jackson, fronted by Luke Steele of Empire Of The Sun.
Witt is set to release his third record, The Shape Up, in 2018.
About this track...
“Musical informants include Mulatu Astatke and Elza Soares. Primarily a DIY bedroom 'sitch with Ginoli (James Ireland of POND) sprinkling that ‘vibraphone’ sonic garnish at the end."
