2017 was an incredible year for MUTO. Reaching millions of streams on Spotify, being hand selected by ODESZA as main support on their European album tour and conquering a 26-date tour across Australia, were just a few of the milestones this proud Sydney-sider ticked off over the past 12 months.
Recent records like ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Say Nothing’ have further grown MUTO’s musical stature, with both being added to high rotation on Triple J. First came the emotionally driven adventure, ‘Wildfire’, followed up by ‘Say Nothing’, a stunning composition highlighting MUTO’s uncanny ability to craft warm electronic textures around Emerson Leif’s vocal prowess. It’s this record that listeners truly can’t get enough of, as it nears 5 million streams on Spotify.
As we reach the half way point of this year, MUTO’s decided it’s about time he gave us the third taste of his highly anticipated EP. ‘Tessellating’, featuring the vocals of neophyte Oliver Dibley, is a stellar record that yet again shines light on his tricky approach to production. It’s a gorgeous tale of the interchanging nature of a relationship, the way they chop, change and bend dependant on whose lens you’re looking through.
With a cohort of champions such as Flume, Odesza & Hayden James and being touted as one of Triple J’s BREAKTHROUGH ARTISTS OF THE YEAR, MUTO’s prepped to unleash his first extended body of work in his ‘Arcane EP’. Coinciding with the release this July, comes his inaugural Splendour in the Grass performance, backed by a 10-date Australian Tour.
‘Arcane’ is a sonic rollercoaster of a debut 7-track EP, flaunting his production prowess. Released through Australian independent label Of Leisure and Universal Music, MUTO is prepped to enlarge his Australian following and take future escapades into Europe and the US, spreading his appealing brand of electronica.
After a beautifully busy 2017, there’s no question that the live stage is where MUTO thrives. With a large solo tour and festival announcements incoming, MUTO will continue to grow and flourish, whilst also hunkering down to produce his next collection of magically engineered sonics.
