Modcast #120: 2:54

2:54 are a sister act. They make the kind of music that makes you feel things. Not bad things, just things that creep up on you and stay there for a few minutes after the speakers go quiet. Its a musical partnership so important they got matching tattoos on their right arms to seal it, so intuitive they can't even describe it.

They treat music like a drug, always after that next aural high. Lucky for them, there's been no shortage of people supporting this habit and their place in the indie hype-o-sphere has been pretty well cemented. Right here, they've opened up their veins, curating this, the 120th Modcast.


If you find yourself in the motherland (AKA England), they'll be playing an in-store show at Rough Trade East on May 31 and at Scala in London with Gross Magic and Echo Lake on June 7.
