2:54 Sign to Fat Possum, Offer Free Music

2:54 is London based sisters Colette & Hannah Thurlow. Casting their spell over critics and audiences alike last fall with the European release of their Scarlet EP, 2:54 make music both beautiful and bewitching. Today, 2:54 are elated to share both new single "You're Early" & Scarlet EP with American audiences and announce their signing in the United States with Fat Possum.

On BBC Radio1, Zane Lowe premiered their latest single, "You're Early" a tightly coiled spring of primal energy, hypnotic melody and hushed obsession. While the track showcases their signature unique melding of rock and punk influences, it also reveals an entrancing and groove-driven side to the band that lends itself to the darker side of r'n'b.

For the b-side, avowed fans and fellow journeymen Wild Beasts tackle the remix - the band's first and only reworking since notoriously taking on Lady Gaga's "You and I" last year. The results for "You're Early" are as strikingly beautiful as you might expect.
