Artist Spotlight: 2:54

Three reasons why 2:54 are awesome:

Reason #1... The name - it's genius! It refers to a particular moment in their favourite Melvins song ('A History Of Bad Men' if you were wondering). What's not to like?

Reason #2... Boy-girl duo's are getting a bit dull now, so the fact that this paining is exclusively female is somewhat refreshing.

Reason #3... Their music, of course. It's loud, scuzzy, sexy and sinister, ingredients which frankly can't fail when they come to the brew.

The brewers - London sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow - have been making waves for a few months now, having initially caused a stir with the demo of their track 'Creeping.' It's not hard to see why, with the seductive mix of shoegaze mystery, grunge fuzz and metallic crunch combining to wondrous effect, a trick they've repeated with the handful of other songs released. That small catalogue is due to be expanded on November 14th, when they finally unleash their debut EP, Scarlet, which will feature four new cuts. For now, though, you can head over to their Soundcloud page to hear for yourself what all the fuss is about.


Scarlet tracklist;

1. Scarlet
2. Wait/Await
