“Dried Spider make me proud to be an Australian musician. I haven’t been this excited about what’s coming out of this country since Haitus Kaiyote”
"dried spider's music comes from some deep unknown place under water - put the hook out and hold on"
Martin Martini - Pound Records


Dried Spider is the project of Matty Witney; a multi-instrumentalist from Brisbane/Melbourne, who plays guitar for the Mama Kin band. He has also worked with Clairy Browne and the Banging Rackettes, and The Harry James Angus Band.
After a 3 month Chicago residency, Matty returns to Australia to present the ‘Wounded City’ EP. Matty is undertaking a 3 month solo tour, during which he will play venues and house concerts across the east and south coast, as well as doing a swag of shows in support of MALA (Lanie Lane).
‘Wounded City’ is a five track sonic journey, which is described by Sam Pankhurst of the Australian Art Orchestra as ‘an opulent sensory trip that keeps giving’. Tracks have been featured on Wondercore Island’s ‘Mixtape No#5’, and ‘The Seed Fund’s’ upcoming mixtape.
Armed with a beat machine, saxophone, guitar, P.A. and van, he hits Australian coasts and regional centres starting in November.
