Future Creature

Electronic outfit of electro-folk fusion driven in equal measure by synth and electric guitar juxtaposed to create sonic terrains ranging from restrained textural pop to down tempo trip hop

Future/Creature appreciates alienation, confusion and non-conformity. Future/Creature mends fences. Future/ Creature employs commercial articulation toward the attractions of escapism. Future/Creature rejects the cult of personality. Future/Creature speaks from a needlepoint. Future/Creature appreciates cats.

Future/Creature is a music duo formed in 2016 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 which brings us to the lead single They Say feat Lanzscape.

Their forthcoming EP was recorded in bedrooms at home's in Victoria, Queensland and most recently in New South Wales, before they hit the studio with producer Bryan Zee based between Murwillimbah and Los Angeles. On the single They Say, 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.

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".

Future/Creature are set to release their debut EP Vol.1 mid April 2017.

First time you ever listened to 4ZZZ?  

Only 2 years ago, driving to Brisbane from Melbourne and was very relieved to find an alternative independent radio amongst all the other commercial crap!!.

First time you were ever played on 4ZZZ? 

Um, 9th Feb 2017 on Planet Z.

First gig you ever played? 

It was in 1992 in a pub called The Happy Penguin in Struer, Denmark - the band was called The Wasted Minutes....

Funniest on-stage f##k up? 

put a new battery in an acoustic guitar pickup but did not take off the shrink wrap and spent the rest of gig trying to get a sound from it to no avail....ended up reciting poetry.

If you could play with one band/muso (dead or alive) in the 4ZZZ carpark who +why? 

Tom Waits cause he is a badass and because that would mean he would be touring here again since last time in 1981.

What is the kewlest/ most definitive feature of  your group/ musical project? 

We think the band name is pretty speccy.I used to drive past two different billboards advertising surf boards and i just lifted some of their text. Also, repeating our name produces an interesting rhythm...

If you were to turn out your pockets at the end of a tour, what is the most common thing you would find?  

Lint, picks, ciggie filters and washed reciepts.

If you/your band/your music took the form of an emoji, which one would it be?

One with a mirror for a face.
