Austin, Texas’ MISSIO is an electronic-duo known for their dark, emotive pop. Formed in 2014, MISSIO features singer/songwriter Matthew Brue and producer/instrumentalist David Butler. Initially, the project began as an outlet for Brue’s solo material. However, after he invited Butler to collaborate on a few songs, they decided to move forward together. Recording in Butler’s converted garage/home studio, they began sculpting their brooding, anthemic sound; releasing such tracks as “I Don’t Even Care About You,” “I Run to You,” and “Can I Exist?” By the end of 2015, they had made their debut at SXSW and garnered support slots alongside acts like SAFIA, K. Flay, and others. In 2017, they delivered the single “Middle Fingers” and signed a recording contract with RCA Records.
