Californian duo Malcom Kelley and Tony Oller have come together to form the dynamic duo MKTO. The name not only represents their combined initials, but also something more.

“It also stands for what our album kind of is: Misfit Kids and Total Outcasts – just like the kids we were in high school.”

Both boys have exercised their acting chops in the past - You may recognise Oller in the Disney Series ‘As The Bells Rings’ and Kelley from the hit show ‘LOST’. The two first met while filming Gigantic in 2010, in which they played best friends.

Their debut single ‘Thank You’ offers a vibrant mix of pop and hip-hop crafted in an undeniably organic way. A definite pop anthem for the underdogs, ‘Thank You’ has the sound of a global hit – their video garnered over 500,000 views within the first 48 hours and has now amassed over 1 million views already!
