PLANET - Matty Took

PLANET - Matty Took

By Gary Jarvie

Matty Took is the frontman of Sydney based band PLANET. 

The guys released their second EP, ‘Maybe Someday’, in April 2020, which heated up the airways with singles ‘Imaginary’,‘ Never New’ and ‘Reason Why’.

I had the pleasure of meeting Matty face to face in June 2021, just a couple of weeks before we headed back into lockdown here in Sydney. 

We chat about some of Matty’s favourite gigs, being part of Sydney’s live scene, playing in bands with his brother Johnny, who many of you will know from the DMAs, and also what’s next for Matty and PLANET.

We also discuss why their unique sound has captured the attention of the U.K, which has been helped with support from “This Feeling" and Radio XFM.

This episode is actually our last for series 1, it was always my intention to wrap up after 12 episodes, as I wanted the opportunity to reflect and take stock of all the incredible conversations to date. Don’t worry, we will definitely be back for series 2, so would love to hear from you if there is anyone you would like me to interview next drop me a message on social media or via the website. 

A massive thank you to everyone who has helped book guests and also all of you lot for listening and supporting the show, it has been a huge passion project for me and it has been a true privilege to listen to, and share so many great live music stories.
