Recent analytics show a big increase in new followers this year so for those who weren't reading me in the 012 then you woulda missed out on plenty a posts on the 2:54 . I ain't a fan of posting branded content, alas no adverts on my blog, but these sister's haunting performance of SUGAR (via the latest Burberry session) is a must-taste and serves as a rather fine intro to the owner's of my fave album of last year !
There have been a few underrated bands releasing albums this year, but perhaps none have been more underrated than London's 2:54 . Their expansive, melodic insight to the strain of Indie-Rock Shoegaze in which they inhabit, can no longer be ignored. People take notice, you're missing out! I'll give you one last chance (even though I've given you several with "Creeping" , "Scarlet" , and "You're Early" ), though, since I'm a nice guy and all, so redeem [...]
I'm not really a fan of group sex but if I had to engaged in a fivesome then it would have to include all four members of the 2:54 . Not only do they make the most delish mp3s that have come in me ears this year, they also have extraordinary visuals to accompany. Check their latest, Georgia Hudson erected new video, SUGAR , which got the band all lush and clubbing for it. Band of the year. Album of the year. Etc. Etc.
If you're in Europe then today marks the release of 2:54 's debut self-titled album, whilst us guys in North America will have to wait another 24 hours before we can get our mitts on it. Today though to celebrate the release the band have dropped the ominously horse-frightening video for their new track "Creeping" which you can rest your eyes upon below. If 2:54 are new to you, the London duo/trio/quartet have released a plethora of tracks in the last few months from "The [...]
We all know the 2:54 deal by now, right? Moody, sludgy guitars, a landscape that wouldn't be out of place in The Killing: that's the 2:54 way. 'Creeping' features on 2:542s debut album, which (I can't believe I'm going to actually write this after all that's gone before) is out [Read more]
Not only have the 2:54 unleashed their debut album today but they've also given us their new video for CREEPING .
On a lovely sunny afternoon earlier this week I spent some time in a local pub in Stokey with the 2:54 . The 2:54 are London-based sisters who sonically sound like a combo of the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and the MAZZY STAR, hanging with the XX whilst the WAR PAINT occasionally drop by, and with a the vocal delivery reminiscent to the SHIRLEY MANSON on the GARBAGE debut album. When you get a mo, you should check their sound . But first plz watch as [...]
A week in and I been officially creaming and shaking and screamin meself every time I play the 2:54 's debut album. Reminiscent of the SHIRLEY's vox on the GARBAGE debut album, check their latest number, YOU'RE EARLY , and come back in me face next week when I'll have interview footage from the Brighton she-sibbling-duo.

Colette and Hannah Thurlow front 2:54, a moniker named after their favourite point of a Melvins song. The Irish-born, London-based girls are gearing up for their forthcoming single 'You're Early', released in two weeks. They're made a video that encapsulates their sound, too. Shrouded in fog, you'll be straining to [Read more]
by Mila Matveeva I think if I could listen to one sound forever, it would be that fantastic mix of shoegaze and dance music that came about in the 902s. 2:54 gave all that I could possibly want out of a performance at SXSW in Austin last week: the dark clothes, the snarls, the sex appeal, the noise. I was in heaven listening to something akin to the xx mixed with " Garlands "-era Cocteau Twins and Curve , mesmerized by Colette Thurlow's focused, far-off gaze and [...]

Tweet Listen to 2:54 's new song "Got A Hold" below. A few weeks ago one of our writers posted the latest video by London's 2:54 called "Scarlet" and I ended up spending the best part of an afternoon listening to it. Now they've announced a new 103 single for "Got A Hold" , another down-beat and emotive twilight jam that's 6 bits [...]
