| Union marks the arrival of the first full length album for Nicola Schultz since her departure from Australian band Swirl. They played at CMJ College Music Seminar in New York and were acknowledged as "one of the buzz bands". Swirl also received widespread US college radio airplay. In Australia they played at the Big Day Out and supported international acts such as My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Ned's Atomic Dustbin and the Lemonheads.
Nicola released a 5 track EP entitled Searching for a Goddess in 2008. In the same year her photography was included in ArtGroupie, an exhibition of artworks by 29 musicians, producers and DJs who also make visual art. Shih, from Nicola's EP, was included on an accompanying cd containing tracks by all the exhibiting artists.
In mid-2010 Nicola launched Union at the Excelsior Hotel, Surry Hills.
With Union Nicola Schultz's emotionally rich and evocative vocals are complemented by guitars and a mix of electronic and organic accompaniments.
