We scoped out 2:54 at Shea Stadium in November with Dive, Gray Pages and Total Slacker, but the gloomy London sister act is about to join the big leagues. 2:54 can now call itself a labelmate to the Black Keys, Spiritualized, Yuck and Youth Lagoon as Fat Possum‘s newest signees.
The news from Hannah and Colette Thurlow comes with a goodie bag featuring their new single, “You’re Early,” a fistfull of stateside tour dates, and, on Monday, the U.S. release of their first EP, Scarlet. Listen to “You’re Early” below, stream the remaining three new tracks over at Spin, and catch 2:54 live at SXSW and select coastal gigs.
