We're extremely excited to welcome Matt Van Schie's new project Tear Council to the UNDR ctrl family.
In 2010 Matt teamed up with Michael Di Francesco to write 'Journey', a single from his 'Balmy Nights' EP. This was the beginning of Tear Council, an outlet for Matt's more emotional outpourings. Now the journey continues with 'Anywhere' and 'My Car', also co written by Michael.
Matt Van Schie is a founding member of Sydney band Van She. The last decade has seen Van She go from strength to strength, supporting the likes of Phoenix and Daft Punk, thrusting themselves upon a myriad of festivals, headlining their own tours and racking up an abundance of fans along the way.
In 2010 Matt released his debut solo EP 'Balmy Nights', with lead single 'Saturday Night' reaching high rotation on triple j. He followed this up by supporting US act Washed Out on their Australian tour and then hit the UK / Europe for a run of shows. Since then, he jumped back on board with Van She, releasing sophomore album 'Idea Of Happiness' in 2012 and touring the world with it the same year.
More recently he's pumped out songs with his disco loving buddy, UK producer Mighty Mouse, with their project Du Tonc. Despite having only a handful of releases, Du Tonc have clocked over two million plays on soundcloud and each single has bumped into the Hype Machine Top 10.
