friendships are Nick Brown & Misha Grace an audio/visual duo currently based in Melbourne, Australia. Their sonic landscape is bass heavy and draws on tribal influences that mix with drum + bass and alternative electronica. This engrossingly dark sound is coupled with a visual component that throws large scale, dark and brooding visual imagery over stages when performed live. The visual art side of friendships is as equally as strong and commanding as their music and the duo regularly exhibit visual work in gallery spaces across Melbourne.
The past two years has seen friendships develop internationally, with highlights being supporting Erykah Badu & Thundercat at Low End Theory in Los Angeles and a sold out show at iconic New York venue Pianos. In Australia, they have supported Purity Ring, Shigeto, Mark Pritchard, RL Grime, and Sinjin Hawke. 2015 saw the duo showcase at Bigsound (Brisbane) and CMJ (New York) and make festival appearances at Volumes Festival (Sydney) and Paradise Music Festival (Melbourne). The start of 2016 has already seen friendships perform the much prized 2am slot at Aunty Meredith’s Golden Plains Festival to huge amounts of praise and make the trip back over to the USA to play SXSW.
