And the winner is…

This morning, triple j Breakfast’s Matt & Alex snuck into Perth’s Presbyterian Ladies’ College to surprise the 2015 Unearthed High winner in front of their whole school.
Unearthed High, triple j’s annual search for Australia’s best high school music act, is one of the most rewarding things we get to do every year. Through it we meet so many talented young people just beginning to forge a musical career, full of incredible ideas and potential, which will come to shape the Australian music landscape one day. None more so than our 2015 Unearthed High winners, Mosquito Coast.  
At just fourteen years of age, singer Naomi Robinson put up flyers around her neighbourhood looking for bandmates, leading her to meet drummer Conor Barton. Naming themselves after a Harrison Ford film and taking musical influence from everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Karen O, they started making crystalline, sun-bleached indie pop as Mosquito Coast. Hear their music here
As part of the prize, Mosquito Coast will now head into the triple j studios to record a track, which will get played on triple j and triple j Unearthed. Plus they’ll get professional advice from a top Australian act and their manager, with the choice of Illy, The Jezabels, Alison Wonderland, Northlane or Art vs Science.
