In the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, asked the media to select the best entry in their opinion and there was unanimous agreement amongst them that this was The Remedy performed by Klinsmann. The former runner-up of the local competition is now offering his vocals to the band known as Planet Seed which also features Stefan Farrugia on lead guitars, Liam Spiteri on bass player, Chris Galea on drums and Etienne Scicluna on keyboards. Planet Seed describe themselves as an alternative rock band citing Muse, Lifehouse, U2, Audio Slave, Coldplay, Train and Goo Goo Dolls as their prime music influences.

Since forming back in 2010, they have been performing a string of cover versions across the Maltese Islands but then, in 2012, this change when they released their very first original single entitled It's Gonna Be OK peaking at numbver #1 on Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay. This was definitely the beginning of something beyond their expectation and garnering a nomination for Best Newcomers at the Bay Music Awards was the cherry on the cake. Their latest single entitled Want You To Know has a predominantly different character within the same genre that the group is trying to encompass. It has also peaked at number #1 before being displaced this week by The Crowns and their latest release Home. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about the local music scene.
