Insatiably catchy and bewitchingly gloomy, 2:54 are a smooth cut all girl duo from London. The sisters, Hannah and Colette, carry themselves as understated cool, looking the part alongside finding their band as a part of an army of understated acts that have been arising within intention.
A sweet yet scary vocal opens up each of the few songs the girls have let loose on the internet. The brooding 'Get A Hold' displays the girls punk inspirations with a softer hold, a fuzzy guitar rift plays on loop throughout the track giving it menacing integrity.
Touring with Warpaint, obvious comparisons have been thrown about but 2:54 are of a different breed. Darker and more mysterious the Thurlow sisters have received more attention off the back of their recent single 'Scarlet' which has been a turning point for the band, earning even more media attention.
Set to tour with the equally as intense and down beat The Big Pink next month and have just completed a tour with The Maccabees. With but four arms between them and drums, bass and two guitars to be played between the sisters, it is a wonder how 2:54 will sound live in comparison to their presence on record. Counting the ever cool Dalston, London as their stomping ground, the pair are sure to spread their sound much further this year.
