Perth duo Mosquito Coast will land at Settlers Tavern tomorrow night as part of their Skipping Girl WA tour. 

Naomi Robinson and Conor Barton were just 17-years-old when they caught the attention of fans and tastemakers after winning triple j’s Unearthed High 2015 and placing at #101 in 2016’s Hottest 100 with their debut single ‘Call My Name’.

Following their big win the duo released two more singles - ‘Commotion’ and ‘Let’s Be Friends’, which were both added to triple j rotation.

After the success of their break-out EP ‘Television Love’ they were nominated for ‘Most Popular Act’ in the WAM Awards 2016, and were also included in the ‘100 best discoveries of the last decade’ by triple j Unearthed.

In early 2018, Naomi and Conor travelled to NYC to record their debut album with French producer, Nicolas Vernhes who’s produced records for the likes of Animal Collective, Deerhunter, The War on Drugs, Moodoïd and Dirty Projectors. 

In their run of shows between 6-8 December, Mosquito Coast will be previewing songs from the new album, which is set for release in early 2019.
