Sister duo 2:54 were one of my hopes for 2011, their dirty shoegaze / 90's grunge sounds with maximum levels of reverb and distortion tick all my boxes. They've now confirmed details of their debut single: "On A Wire" b/w "Cold Front" will be released via House Anxiety on 28th March.
We've heard "On A Wire" previously in demo form, not too much has changed, it needed not, it's still a moody menacing bass heavy number. New one "Cold Front" is more percussion heavy than previous numbers but still in evidence are the chugging, distorted guitar-work that makes 2:54 really stand-out amongst the ever increasing number of new bands from the Capital.
