Darwinian quartet Pole Top Rescue have signed a global publishing deal with Embassy Music Publishing this week, ahead of the band's new EP being released later this year.

The band's bassist, Kieran Parsons, says, "The band is stoked to be one of the first direct local signings to Embassy Music Publishing. We're in good company with the amazingly talented global Music Sales roster that includes some of our favourite artists and writers.

"We've got new songs, a dedicated publisher and a mass of plans for the year. We can't wait to unleash our new tropical treats on Australia!" Parsons said.

Pole Top Rescue already have two self-released EPs under their belt; meanwhile, this time last year, Embassy Music Publishing struck a worldwide sub-publishing deal with local label The A&R Department.
