Australian duo Two People burst onto the scene in 2016 upon the release of their debut singles “Fading” and “If We Have Time” which garnered over four million streams and received praise from the likes of SPIN, Stereogum, NY Mag’s Vulture, Nylon, Bullett, and more.
Comprised of Phoebe Lou and Joseph Clough, the Melbourne-based duo formed following the dissolution of their prior project, Snakadaktal. Over the past two years, they have written, recorded, and produced their debut album at their studio and respective homes.
Two People are proud to finally release the exquisite lead single, “I’m Tied, To You,” available now on all digital platforms.
After reaching out to revered Scottish producer Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Sampha, Adele, King Krule) to mix, Rodaidh came on board, later offering to mix the entire LP at XL studios in London. Adding further to the Two People team, the project is now under the care of Melbourne-based management company, Good Manners – home to artists like Kllo and Planète.
About the new track, Two People comment: “the words are written about being tied to yourself. There is a fragility and frustrated loneliness in that. It’s a kind of dialogue. Here, the ‘you’ is myself. We had a great moment recording the sax through our guitar amp and pedals. Joey was improvising in the final stages of production and the room sounded like a big dark rave, it just sounded right, we knew then that it was ready. We used that initial recording on the album, if you listen closely you might hear us yelling wildly and moving around the room.”
