With the release of their latest album, Big Blue World, and its infectious title track, MTS' London songwriting and production team of Neil Fitzsimon and Bee Brogan, collectively known as FaB, have propelled their collective career into the pop stratosphere.

At The Disco, Imagine Dragons, Halsey and Coldplay, among other notable acts.
Neil Fitzsimon on the song’s creation: “When i first wrote the song, Bee’s (Brogan’s) mum said it sounded like ‘Waltzing Matilda.’ When we recorded the song in the studio, with producer Pat Collier (Katrina and the Waves), Bee could not get the scream to sound right, so we had to ask an ex-band member to send in the demo, so we could drop the original into the track. I don’t think he was very pleased!”
