2:54 – The Other I

Sisterhood implies close connectivity and a strong sense of self-containment when working together. Colette and Hannah Thurlow, who clock in as 2:54, demonstrate both aspects on The Other I, the follow-up to 2012’s eponymous debut, with empathy dripping from every verse and chord. Colette titled the album after recalling how the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley spoke of his friend and muse, Elizabeth Hitchener, as the “sister of my soul, my second self.” And so the album sets out to explore the conflict between inner self and outer persona, seen through the vision of two sisters whose brand of music communicates as much, if not more, than their words.
