Austin-based duo MISSIO have created their own unique, uncategorisable sound – at times it feels nostalgic and closely familiar, but just when you’re about to place a finger on why, their next track evolves into something entirely different. Lyrically, they write with poeticism and honesty, juxtaposing darkness and light and asking their audience to indulge in both with them.
Made up of singer-songwriter Matthew Brue and producer David Butler – who officially partnered in 2015 – MISSIO (taken from the Latin word “mission”) have since released a two-part EP “Skeletons”, debut album Loner in 2017 and, earlier this year, a highly acclaimed follow-up record The Darker The Weather // The Better The Man. But most important to them are the connections they’ve made along the way, having built a fiercely loyal community of fans who’ve resonated with their personal journeys and lyrics.
Fresh off the back of a European tour, we caught up with the pair to find out more about their creative process, why they love being on the road and what’s to come.
