In 2010, 2:54 was formed. The duo has since toured with The Big Pink, The xx, Warpaint, The Maccabees and more. The Other I, the sophomore album from 2:54, was released in 2014 via Bella Union. See the family band live on March 14 at Viva PhxAZ Latino Arts & Cultural Center at 11 P.M..

Very first concert you played and a memory from it.

Artist you would most like to collaborate with or have produce your music?
Trent Reznor, we’re huge fans of the cinematic texture he creates.

Personal truth that fans would be surprised to know about you.
Hannah runs marathons.

Working day jobs — every spare minute we have is dedicated to making music and writing.

One artist or album you could never get tired of listening to?
Colette: The new Father John Misty record, I Love You, Honeybear. The humanity of it is remarkable. It’s the first album in a long time that I listen to whole. It’s been on repeat during this tour.

Hannah: Colette playing piano and going to piano classes as a child.

Nicest thing a fan has ever said, or given, to you?
We have the most wonderful fans, they make amazing artwork, we’ve received some beautiful drawings.

Interesting fact about your newest release.
Colette: Hannah got to record a few riffs on Ry Cooder‘s guitar for the new album, which was in the studio at the time — very special.

Xperience you will never forget.
This tour — it’s the best!
