Heralding from Adelaide in South Australia, this brother-sister duo are well accustomed to traveling, having lived and worked with artists, street performers and musicians all around the world. Coming from a highly musical family; of Estonian, French and English heritage, Dante and Xavia Nou started playing and recording as children. Only in 2005 did the BrotherSister project officially begin. Making a studio of any room with some peace and quiet, they compile songs by sending files to each other across oceans and cities, layering melodic acoustic instruments over electronic beats and sounds creating an evocative mix of whimsical and sometimes bleak tale-like songs. Having been received warmly for a sprinkling of shows in the USA and AUS, the siblings kept their heads down in 2007 to finish their anticipated second album- 'TheWunder Tales'. (”wunder”- a place where a collection of rarities and curiosities are exhibited). Following in the self produced footsteps of their debut self titled EP,'The Wunder Tales’ has remained an international effort with mastering completed in Nashville by Marc Chevalier and artwork in NYC by grammy award winning design firm- SHILO (www.shilo.tv) who are currently working on the bands second music video, ‘Still Run’.
