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 are releasing their 2nd EP, Vol.2, this companion EP to Vol.1 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 EP offers a rich amalgamation of progressive musical production mixed with honest lyrical song writing which is at the true heart of this creative pair.
