Nic Brown and Misha Grace have an air of invincibility about them. Immortality even. 

They're friendships, an audio/visual 2 piece from Melbourne who play chaotic future sounds, storming drum'n'bass, post-Warp slammers and searing, ear-shearing techno. Their live show projects large scale, dark and brooding visual imagery that explores primal elements of life; animals, the human body, paint, pattern and faces. Their paintings feature drooling, gnashing dogs; an obese man on an invisible crucifix blurting “God Bless America,”; a couple embracing, mouths wide open;  blue and brown smeared figures, meshed with each other cathartically.

friendships have racked up their flying hours. They've supported Erykah Badu, Thundercat, Purity Ring, Mark Pritchard, RL Grime and blown crowds away at Bigsound (Brisbane), Volumes Festival (Sydney), Paradise Music Festival (Vic), Golden Plains Festival (Vic), NYE On The Hill (Vic), SXSW (TX, USA) and CMJ (NY, USA). 

Their debut album, Nullarbor 1988-1989, is an exploration into contemporary Australian identity and landscape. The 12 tracks journey through quiet piano, rap, spoken word and thwarting electronica. Nullarbor was shortlisted for the The 2016 Australian Music Prize, received album of the week on 3RRR, PBS, FBi Click and Edge FM Radio. In America, it peaked at number 14 on the CMJ RPM chart as well as making the Top 200 on both the CMJ and NACC charts.
