After enjoying artists like Warpaint, Esben and the Witch, Grimes, Sleater-Kinney and Blood Red Shoes, I was hoping to find another female fronted band that fell into this type of genre.
I came across 2:54 purely through a similar artists recommendation on Amazon and I owe most of this past months listening to that recommendation.
2:54 are a British Warpaint, i'm sure they don't want the comparisons but if you enjoy Warpaint, you will adore 2:54 but with that said, there is no sense of plagiarism here at all.
The haunting female melodic vocals and somber dreamy riffs are aural perfection and more often than not you will listen with goosebumps throughout your body.
Vocalist Colette Thurlow sounds like a less damaged PJ Harvey mixed with the a defeated Melissa Auf der Maur and a tender Shirley Manson but I think Thurlows vocals are without influence and at times incomparable.
The album is so cheap at the moment, i highly recommend purchasing.
