NME Radar stars ‘2:54’ announce debut EP details

Wild Beasts favourites also plot UK tour dates - ticket details

Hotly tipped newcomers 2:54 have announced plans to release their debut EP ‘Scarlet’ in the autumn.

The grunge siblings have teamed up with Depeche Mode knob-twiddler Alan Moulder for the four track record, which is out on November 14.

The band, who feature in this week’s Radar section of NME, have been championed by Wild Beasts frontman Hayden Thorpe. He said:

They’re really quite special. They’re quite effortless and that can’t be faked. It’s quite a revivalist sound, grunge-crossover/early Britpop, but it’s executed so beautifully.

To read the full interview, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now (September 14) or available digitally.

The full tracklisting for ‘Scarlet’ is as follows:

‘Got A Hold’

They are also due to hit the road for four UK dates to coincide with their EP release kicking off in Bournemouth on November 4. They will play:

Bournemouth 60 Million Postcards (November 4)
Louisiana Bristol (6)
London Corsica Studios (9)
Leeds Brudenell Social Club (11)
