Physical are Wellington, New Zealand based duo Julia (Black City Lights), and Nik (Junica, Over the Atlantic). They met in a karaoke bar in Chinatown, New York in 2013: The song was ‘Drive’ by The Cars.
In 2015, Nik approached Julia to write together as a contribution to his project Ghostwriters Collective. Twelve months and 8 tracks later, they had written and recorded an unapologetically upbeat yet dramatic pop record – ‘Ride it Out’.
Their debut album is about emotional survival and staying up late; a shout out to their deep mutual love for future R&B and synth pop and heavily influenced by musical heroes like Banks and Dev Hynes.
