Melbourne’s chaotic audio/visual two piece friendships are celebrating the release of their Debut LP Nullarbor 1988-1989 with two massive shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
To celebrate the announcement of their album launch shows, friendships have shared another cut from Nullarbor 1988-1989. ‘Move (Fast)’ is a high tension heater, featuring the rapid-fire otherworldly vocals of Yaw Faso and Unsoundbwoy. Upon close listening, the track harbours a looming synth line which echoes that of ‘When I Feel Like Killing, I Murder,’ revealing a sense of cogency amongst the seemingly chaotic Nullarbor 1989-1999. Listen to the track via Soundcloud below.
The highly anticipated debut, released by Dot Dash / Remote Control and US label Mansion Records, comes packaged as an impressive double disk 12″ vinyl in custom ‘friendships Gutter Death Red’. The first physical from the duo includes original hand painted cover art by friendships and collaborations with Melbourne artists such as HABITS, thelovelyme, Yaw Faso, and Unsoundbwoy.
“The Nullarbor plain is the physical body of land that links Misha and I (Jerramungup, Western Australia & Footscray, Victoria), We have conceptually created an audio visual representation to the Nullarbor in 1988-1989 isolation.” – says Nic Brown of friendships.
