Watch List: Discover ABTLSTNT, Your New Favorite Indie Pop Outfit
Jackson Owens, Jack Taylor, Mikey Bromley and Eben Franckewitz make up ABTLSTNT. The New Zealand-based four piece seemed to fall out of nowhere, something like a fallen musical angel.
If you're wondering where the abstract name came from, use your imagination a bit... or simply take out the vowels. 'About Last Night' makes up the band's drawn out name, and includes a familiar face if you pay close attention. Remember Mikey Bromley? He was a contestant and stand out artist in Remember Only The Young off of The X Factor? Bromley was certainly part of the buzz. He's since taken his talents to ABTLSTNT, creating a different sound that leans more towards an cool indie vibe. The sound is certainly signature, blending recognizable elements with a fresh, cultured injection to make up their debut EP, WRT. RCRD. RPT (Write. Record. Repeat innit).
"You Pulled me cruel intentions,never to share
Disclose my heart no secrets now that we're there"

From what we know, it looks like their former band was called Far Young -- Revamped into a musical outfit that is mature in sound, imaginitive in composition with likability skyrocketing with every listen (not to mention they're easy on the eyes...)
This is only the beginning for the guys, and this debut has locked in our suspicion of the next big thing.
