Within the dusky shadows of Two People’s music is much melancholia and woe, as we learned last year when we came across the Australian duo’s song If We Have Time. Phoebe Lou and Joseph Clough, the masterminds behind the project, are well known for their role in now dissolved project Snakadaktal (whom we were huge fans of here at IHM). And now, the pair are back with an exquisite new song named ‘I’m Tied, To You’, a moody smoldering, seductive throbbing alt pop and electro piece brimming with visceral burning, lonely aching saxophone and doused with a kinetic tide of impassioned beats. Of the track, Phoebe says:  “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.” 

Two People will launch their awaited live show at Splendour In The Grass this July as a three-piece. They aim to create a flowing set that that exaggerates every sound, moment and feeling from their recordings. I can only imagine how arresting ‘I’m Tied, To You’ will be, with its galvanic current and ambulatory flux. Stream/download the sensational single, here.
