Published Jul 21, 2014Now that the buzz surrounding 2:54's 2012 debut album has died down, the British-based sister duo have signed with Bella Union in advance of the follow-up. While details surrounding their sophomore LP are still forthcoming, they have shared the new song "Orion."
The song recalls the mascara-caked gothic drama of Disintegration-era the Cure, with a intro consisting of lush synth orchestrations and slow, pounding drums. At times, the arrangement picks up for slightly spikier post-post passages before returning to the dreamy cinematics.
Expect 2:54's new album later this year.
