Two People – “If We Have Time”

Phoebe Lou and Joey Clough are the Australian duo Two People. They make a great brand of darkly shaded, exquisitely textured indie pop. Their latest offering is “If We Have Time.” It’s a slow-building piano ballad that melts seamlessly into catchy melodies, gauzy vocal flourishes from Lou, intricate percussion, and airy synths that belie penetrating lyrics. Lou sings of a relationship that should be brazenly honest and forthcoming because you never know what could await you around the corner. Here’s what Lou had to say about the song: “There’s a big feeling in this song, a sort of smiling defeat. I remember feeling pretty sore when I wrote the words, but they are unafraid and I like that.” Listen.
