Listen: Wild Beasts Remix 2:54 on Single B-Side

April 4, 2012 by  

Scuzzy gloom-pop sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow, or 2:54 as they’re most commonly known, are releasing their single “You’re Early” on Monday April 9th, va Fiction Records. They’ve just shared a new Wild Beasts remix of the single via Soundcloud, which features Hayden Thorpe’s velvety falsetto crooning over cut-and-pasted stems of their vocal lines.

Given a downtempo electronica rework, the single barely clocks in over two minutes but leaves the sort of resounding impression both bands are now known for. Considering they were tour buddies last autumn, perhaps their influences rubbed off on each other.

Listen to the track above, and check out the band’s current UK tour dates to catch them in a city near you. They’ll be playing with recent blog buzz darlings Deaf Club, dark chanteuse Chelsea Wolfe and Rough Trade signing Palma Violets.
