Young Heretics were a musical duo based in Melbourne, Victoria, formed in 2009. The project comprises Kitty Hart and her half-brother, The Getaway Plan frontman Matthew Wright.[2]

After their debut release EP The Dreamers was met with acclaim from the underground music scene worldwide,[3][4] the siblings followed up with their debut album titled We Are The Lost Loves seven months later.[5][6][7][8][9] The months in-between were spent touring the country alongside Australian bands Kid Sam, Parades, Jonathan Boulet, Gin Wigmore, Bertie Blackman and Philadelphia Grand Jury.

The self-produced album was recorded with the help of Tom Larkin (of Shihad fame) at three different Melbourne studios.[2]

More than 60 musicians and audio effects by movie maker Peter Jackson were used to create the album. The band caused a stir within the media when they decided to leak the full album for free a month before its official release.[10]

The duo commenced their first full band tour around Australia in July 2010 in support of the album, with Comic Sans, Siren Lines and Guineafowl supporting.[11]

In July 2010 Young Heretics signed to Japanese indie label Cocoheart Records; their album was released into stores in Japan on 22 September 2010.[12]

Kitty Hart is a passionate animal rights activist and member of Animals Australia. Young Heretics headlined World Vegan Day 2010.[13]

In 2011 the band went on hiatus while Matthew records the second album with Rock band The Getaway Plan and Kitty is writing for indie folk project Magic Spells.[14]
