Bad boys Matthew Brue (lead vocals) and David Butler (producer, instrumentalist) combine to become Missio. First formed in 2014, the electronica band first started life as a Brue’s solo project before expanding to include Butler to expand the sound. The duo began by recording in a garage where they began to formulate their brooding yet anthemic sound which they took to the stage to perform in front of live audiences which saw them make the SWSX debut only a year later.
Now signed to RCA Records, they have just released their new single 'Middle Fingers'. Full of swagger, the song is a defiant stance against the trappings of fame and makes their hate of the false world that surrounds them abundantly clear. Their attack on pretention comes through a playful almost nursery rhyme vocal delivery which almost underplays the dark subject matter, backed by a pulsing synth verses and a crash of drum machine at the chorus.
With their debut album ‘Loner’ currently on pre-order the pair prepare to take over The Camden Assembly in North London in June. Tickets are just about to become available (release date 06/06) and expected to sell quickly so set a personal reminder right now.
