High Tropics in the running for Universal Music record deal

Wait... what?

Yep, those garage-indie-pop rock dudes from the little ol' Sunny Coast are in the running to win a record deal with Universal Music, due to entering the Project Aloft Star competition.

Yeah, we never heard of it either, but apparently IT'S A BIG DEAL.

The lads in High Tropics sent in, along with many other 'unsigned' artists demos or music videos, and due to the catchiness of their tracks such as 'You Never Made It Easy' and 'Wait For You' (which we already know are great tracks, and have amassed half a million streams on Spotify), they were hand-picked to head to the final, up against four other acts in the Asia Pacific region.

And you can help them get over the finish line (as well as potentially winning 50,000 loyalty points - score).  Head to projectaloftstarasia.com , cast your vote (and if you want, put in your details).

Nice one.
