Perth band Mosquito Coast are the newly crowned winners of triple j‘s 2015 Unearthed High competition.
The boy-girl duo consists of singer/guitarist Naomi Robinson and drummer Conor Barton from Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Churchlands High School respectively.
The rockers won over the Unearthed High judges with their cruisy tune Call My Name which has also received the thumbs-up from triple j listeners in the last few weeks.
The pair beat out other finalists Fifth Dawn, Genesis Owusu, Lupa J, and Spire who were chosen out of a pool of over 850 entrants. They will know go into the studio to record one of their tracks and also receive mentoring from their choice of The Jezabels, Northlane, Art vs Science, Alison Wonderalnd or Illy.
The winners of Unearthed High have a history of doing particularly well following the contest. Last year’s winner Japanese Wallpaper has just come off a sold-out tour while the 2013 winner Asta is burning up the airwaves with her new Allday-assisted single Dynamite.
Expect to be hearing plenty more from Mosquito Coast very soon.
