2:54 / HONEYBLOOD

SEE EVENT DETAILS
London-based sister duo, 2:54 have announced a U.S tour with Honeyblood from late February through March next year in support of their new album The Other I, out now on Bella Union. The Other I is all the stronger for Hannah and Colette's hands-on approach to production - their atmospheric, imaginative and thrilling vein of rock music bleeds through the album's emotional terrain that's been carved from circumstances out of their control but equally their sisterly bond.

Even before Colette and Hannah Thurlow wrote their new album, the London-based sisters’ atmospheric, imaginative and thrilling vein of rock music under the name 2:54 was already a force to be reckoned with. Their hugely acclaimed debut album won them a burgeoning world-wide fan base, and tours across the globe with out-spoken champions like The XX, Warpaint, and Wild Beasts. But the events that tested their commitment and resilience have upped the ante, to produce the magnificent drama and beauty of their second album The Other I, their first outing for new label home Bella Union (The Flaming Lips, John Grant, Beach House).

From the expansive, tempo-shifting opener ‘Orion’, and the pining roots of ‘The Monaco’ to the ambient haunts of ‘Tender Shoots’ and the shape-shifting tour de force of ‘Raptor’, the album significantly widens the net beyond the achievements of 2:54’s self-titled debut. The Other I is all the stronger for Hannah and Colette’s hands-on approach to production (Hannah is multi-instrumental on the record) while Colette’s lead vocals show a striking versatility. The album’s emotional terrain has been carved from circumstances out of their control but equally their sisterly bond.

Born in Ireland, they were raised in Bristol, consuming their parents’ rock’n’roll and soul/jazz collections and, as teenagers, the city’s drum & bass scene. But it was music of a heavier hue that truly united them. Colette cites Bad Brains, Fugazi, Yawning Man and Nico as key inspirations; Hannah leant more toward Deftones and Nine Inch Nails.
