LISTEN: London Sister Duo 2:54 Sets Off “You’re Early,” Heads to SXSW

It’s time to give a warm welcome to the latest musical arrival from London, 2:54. Having just signed with Fat Possum, the sister duo (Colette and Hannah Thurlow) have taken America by storm with their unique brand of driving, yet haunting music that begs to ask the question: How is it only just the two of them?

2:54 is releasing its first EP—Scarlet—in the States this Monday (March 5), but you can get a taste of their sound here with the dark and hypnotic single “You’re Early.” A surprisingly heavy bass opens the song and continues to lead the song through the low and rich vocals. When the track finally ends, you might be left pondering exactly what it is you've just experienced, and still longing for more.

The girls will be launching a small (first) U.S. tour including several dates at this month’s not-be-missed festival, SXSW.
