2:54 is London based sisters Colette & Hannah Thurlow. Casting their spell over critics and audiences alike last fall with the European release of their Scarlet EP, 2:54 make music both beautiful and bewitching
Today, 2:54 are elated to share both new single "You're Early" & Scarlet EP with American audiences and announce their signing in the United States with Fat Possum.
The band will continue their US takeover this March for their first US tour, splicing an explosive stint down at South By Southwest with both East and West coast stops along the way.
On Monday night on BBC Radio1, Zane Lowe premiered their latest single, "You're Early" a tightly coiled spring of primal energy, hypnotic melody and hushed obsession. While the track showcases their signature unique melding of rock and punk influences, it also reveals an entrancing and groove-driven side to the band that lends itself to the darker side of r'n'b. The track received it's web premiere via Pitchfork last week, igniting an online flurry of plaudits, including Stereogum, Fader, and Q Magazine's 'Track of the day'.
For the B-side, avowed fans and fellow journeymen Wild Beasts tackle the remix - the band's first and only reworking since notoriously taking on Lady Gaga's "You and I" last year. The results for "You're Early" are as strikingly beautiful as you might expect.
After their US tour, 2:54 will return to the UK this April, touring with Los Angeles doom-folk princess Chelsea Wolfe and UK dreamers, Deaf Club. The band has also announced their biggest headline show to date at London's Legendary Scala venue on June 7th.
Download the "Scarlet" EP now at the Fat Possum store or from other digital retailers on Monday, March 05.
