Phoebe Lou and Joseph Clough are Two People. The Melbourne duo formed following the dissolution of their prior project, Snakadaktal. Over the past two years, they’ve written, recorded and produced their debut LP at their studio and respective homes.

Today, Two People are proud to finally release their exquisite lead single, ‘I’m Tied, To You’, which premiered last night on triple j’s Good Nights.

“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.” – Phoebe Lou

Two People reached out to revered Scottish producer Rodaidh McDonald to mix, ‘I’m Tied, To You’, who has worked on records from the xx, Sampha, Adele and King Krule. Impressed by what he heard, Rodaidh came on board to mix the single, later offering to mix the full 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.

Two People were thrilled to announce that their long-awaited live show will launch at Splendour In The Grass this July. Performing as a three-piece, the live side of Two People has immersed Phoebe and Joseph lately. They aim to create a flowing set that exaggerates every sound, moment and feeling from the recordings.

‘I’m Tied, To You’ is the first new music from the duo since their debut single, ‘Fading’ and follow up, ‘If We Have Time’. These tracks have received over 4 million streams and airplay on triple j, RRR and FBi Radio. Two People’s compelling and melancholic sounds are influenced by artists like Portishead, Darkside and Warpaint. It’s captured them the attention of influential media such as NYLON, SPIN, Stereogum, Indie Shuffle, The Line Of Best Fit, Pilerats and Purple Sneakers.
