BATTS is the project of Melbourne based musician and space enthusiast Tanya Batt. Creating a blend of folk and rock, whilst previously weaving in samples collected from space missions courtesy of NASA, throughout her music.

2022 sees BATTS moving away from space collaborations and onto collaborating with one of her songwriting idols – Sharon Van Etten with her new single ‘Blue’. This comes with the signing announcement to Australia’s indie darlings ‘Mistletone’ and the launch of her own label I Feel Fine Records’ ahead of her Sophomore release.

BATTS has been touring Australia the past few years building up a resume of local and international supports with Sharon Van Etten, Lucius, The Teskey Brothers, The Magic Numbers, Nilüfer Yanya, Leif Vollebekk, Jess Cornelius, Didirri, and many more. In 2018 BATTS embarked on her first international tour to the UK, supporting Cub Sport and also playing shows with Communion Music and Sounds Australia.
