Two People - First Body - Album Art

TWO PEOPLE
‘PHONE CALL’
(Out now through Liberation Records)

Two People have shared their anticipated debut full length LP First Body. Its release continues a huge year for the Melbourne-duo, which saw them unveil three singles, launch their live show at Splendour in the Grass, and sign to LA-based label Terrible Records (Solange, Blood Orange, Moses Sumney, Empress Of) after renowned performances at BIGSOUND.

“The record is out now – it’s a really big deal. An important time for us. We’re so excited to have this out and finally share what we’ve been creating together.” – Two People

Premiered yesterday on FBi, ‘Phone Call’ is the new single and follows ‘In The Garden, ‘Something To Talk About’ and ‘I’m Tied, To You’.

“This is our ballad. It’s written about when Joey and I were young and dating, about nine to ten years ago now, fumbling around, finding our edges, hurting like crazy. We wanted the track to be big in size, all heart, wide and orchestral.”– Phoebe Lou

To add to the excitement, Two People have announced their first international live shows as they join the coveted line-up for SXSW taking place this March in Austin, Texas USA. Before then, they’ll play St. Kilda Festival, and bring their live show to Melbourne and Sydney for two special First Body headline dates on Feb 28 and March 2 – tickets are available now. Intimate and immersive, Two People’s live vision has become an illustrious part of the project, performing multiple headline shows over the past six months, including a co-headline national tour with LUCIANBLOMKAMP.

With 9 tracks and a running time of 42.14, First Body is a pulsating aural soundscape guided by bold visual cues an emphasis on the empty space between notes as much as the notes themselves. It was self-recorded and produced by Two People at their own 2P Studio, an old room in Fitzroy that they renovated with love. In a document that existed well before any songs did, the pair wrote;

“The music, above all else has to move you, physically and emotionally.”

The name Rodaidh McDonald was also in this document on a short and ambitious list of engineers. Protective by nature, Two People reached out to the revered Scottish producer, who has worked on records from the xx, Sampha, Adele and King Krule, to mix ‘I’m Tied, To You’. Compelled by what he heard, he offered to mix the full album at XL Studios in London.

“Everything that Rodaidh’s worked on is really unique. He doesn’t have a certain style or stamp that he puts on artists – it’s all about the artist sounding like themselves. That was how it appeared from the outside and when he sent back that first mix of I’m Tied it sounded exactly as it should.”

The singles from First Body are receiving global attention from BBC Radio 1, Radio 6, Beats 1 and Amazing Radio. Locally, Two People have scored premieres and rotation on triple j and FBi Radio, with ‘Something To Talk About’ debuting at #1 on the AMRAP Metro Chart on release. They’re currently featuring in a collection of Apple Music and Spotify playlists, including Chill Vibes, which reaches over 950,000 followers. 2016’s debut singles ‘Fading’ and ‘If We Have Time’ have amassed over 4 million streams.

Two People are thrilled that First Body is yours.
