2:54 Exclusive Album Stream – ‘The Other I’

Colette and Hannah Thurlow are back with their second album ‘The Other I’. You can hear it exclusively below for the first time. Written in Paris and London, it’s a dramatic wash of lush guitars, surging climactic choruses, moody riffs and hazy vocals. The album’s title was inspired by the poet Percy Shelley, “a rousing romantic, politically charged, a proto-punk of sorts,” says Collette:

He called his friend and muse Elizabeth Hitchener the ‘sister of my soul, my second self.’ These lines kept returning to me last year and from there I arrived at ‘The Other I’. The Other I is an enquiry into the duality of the human experience – the division between the self that pounds on like a juggernaut in your head, and the self you present to the world. The idea extends to Hannah and I, to our sisterhood. We know intrinsically what the other thinks and feels, music is just another language we use to communicate

You can catch the duo live in venues across the UK in November and preorder the album here.
