Australian Chelsea Reed met Canadian David Macmichael when living overseas. At the end of a tour together through French Canada together they faced a painful fork in the road spurred by an expiring Visa - to part ways and never see eachother again or follow their hearts and marry.
Without hesitation David agreed and after moving to Australia to wait out the pandemic, they fell in love with their new life and together, they explored the music that started it all.
Their debut EP ‘Nothing Bad is Ever Going To Happen’ recounts feelings of love, loss and the passage of time and narrates their unique and exciting origin story. The duo explained, “'Nothing Bad is Ever Going to Happen' is a collection of songs we’ve been working on since forming. It covers a range of styles we incorporate as a two piece, and covers autobiographical themes of heartache, rejection, mental health, and slacking off while life passes you by.”
The EP Features previously released single ‘Washer’ which, after a premiere with Music Feeds, garnered praise from community radio tastemakers. Accompanying this are four unreleased tracks, including focus single ‘It Is What It Is’ sets the scene perfectly.
Recorded at Rancho Relaxo Studios by Shaun Gaida (The Mountains, East Journey, Tiger Widow). The track was then mixed and produced by Jack Moffitt (The Preatures, Isabella Manfredi) and mastered by Andrew Edgson (Matt Corby, 5 Seconds of Summer, The Kite String Tangle) at 301 Studios.
This release is accompanied by a debut inaugural tour which sees the duo travelling to Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide.
