Even before Colette and Hannah Thurlow wrote their new
album, the London-based sisters' atmospheric, imaginative and
thrilling vein of rock music under the name 2:54 was already a
force to be reckoned with. But the events that tested their
commitment and resilience have upped the ante, to produce the
magnificent drama and beauty of The Other I. From the expansive,
tempo-shifting opener 'Orion', and the pining roots of 'The
Monaco' to the ambient haunts of 'Tender Shoots' and the
shape-shifting tour de force of 'Raptor', the album significantly
widens the net beyond the achievements of 2:54's self-titled
debut. The Other I is all the stronger for Hannah and Colette's
hands-on approach to production while Colette's lead vocals
show a striking versatility. The album's emotional terrain has
been carved from circumstances out of their control but equally
their sisterly bond.
Written in Paris and London, the album was recorded at Bella
Union's East London studio before the Thurlows and Alex
Robins decamped to North London's Fish Factory to complete it
alongside co-producer and mixer James Rutledge, who's
worked with the likes of Radiohead and Fever Ray. 'In The
Mirror' and 'Sleepwalker' are cited as key entry points to the
album's core values, while lyrically 'Orion' sets the scene for the
album's adventures. 'Raptor' is the album's brilliant finale, with its
simmering intro, hypnotic flow, thrilling coda and rallying mantra:
''Calling, I'm calling, I'm calling, I can hear it / You don't know us
/ One more turn and then I'll go / The end, the end, the end is
close.''
