2:54, sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow, have done an amazing cover version of Seal and Adamski’s Nineties classic, ‘Killer’.
Currently main support to the XX on their European comeback tour, they just premiered the surprise track online, with Colette commenting, “There’s a nostalgia to ‘Killer’ that each member of the band identifies with.
We grew up listening to Seal. ‘Kiss from a Rose’ and ‘Crazy’ are such big songs.
We thought it would be interesting to re-work a pop song and put a 2:54 spin on it. The lyrics are really moving too; melancholic and tough. To me it feels like a song about hope and solidarity.”
Next month the two bands join forces again, for an amazing US adventure together, before 2:54 head back to blighty for a full UK headline tour taking in 11 dates across the country, with a penultimate show at London’s XOYO on November 7th .
