Future/Creature are a music duo from Northern Rivers NSW. Composed of Eliana on synth and sharing lead vocals with multi-instrumentalist and producer Matt Davidson, Future/Creature’s sound ranges from restrained textural pop to down tempo trip hop to indie rock.
Future/Creature’s 2nd EP, Vol.2, is a companion EP to Vol.1 which features the duo exploring the darker side of identity, relationships and social isolation that is a by-product of a technologically connected society. Drawing inspiration from their own eclectic musical tastes, the EPs offer a rich amalgamation of progressive musical production mixed with honest lyrical song writing which is at the true heart of this creative pair. On the single They Say, Vol.1, hip-hop artist Lanzscape approached Eliana and Matt with a rap he’d sung over the track which “really expanded on the positive message we had for that track”, says Matt.
Their EP’s were recorded by Mildsparrow aka FlashDazzler at home’s in Victoria, Queensland and most recently in New South Wales, before they hit the studio with engineer/producer Bryan Zee based between Murwillumbah and Los Angeles.
Forging their own musical landscape, Future/Creature defy definition and challenge today’s popular culture of sound by creating tracks that are honest, vulnerable and true to their own identity, whilst not forgetting the axiom that inspiration comes from actual experience, whether pleasant or challenging.
Within this, Future/Creature have created a body of work that is unique, truthful and an expression of life lived, love lost and hope reinstated.
As for Eliana’s and Matt’s shared creativity, they state, “It’s good that we have each other during this creation, to make sure that the love for the music is always there and that we don’t get overwhelmed or push our own agenda. When someone knows you intimately and they are your bandmate also, it’s easy for them to keep you in check. You need someone around who will encourage you, but also knows when to tell you to stop being crazy and get your act together”.
The duo formed in 2016 after various incarnations as both a duo and other bands. Find out more about Matt, read his full bio, and Eliana, read her full bio to see what other projects they have worked on.
