Play It Forward: 2:54

The band 2:54 are two sisters out of London who play shoegaze, drone, indie, garage rock to a whole new level. Their band name comes from a moment in a Melvins track ('A History Of Bad Men'). "We were always massive punk fans," explains Colette “It segued into other stuff – metal, then the Melvins and starting a life-long love of Queens Of The Stone Age, and from that we found Yawning Man and the whole family tree.”   When comparing their music to others it may be safe to file them right beside Warpaint, Esben & The Witch, and even a little bit of The xx. Check out the video for 'Scarlet' and you get a little sense of what 2:54 try to capture in their music. The track has a haze about it that captivates your mind and the mystery and intrigue of the band only further develop.
