The duo reveal their patient craft and mastery of mood with a carefully restrained palette of sounds. These songs unfold in a drift of hazy synths, crackling beats and smoky ambience. There’s tension in the dense compositions, but also a light that permeates the nocturnal foreboding. For the album, Two People worked with Rodaidh McDonald, the producer and engineer also known for his contributions to contemporaries King Krule, Sampha and The xx.
First Body is out January 18 via Liberation.
