August 2020 Album of the Month: Two People – Second Body


Second Body could not have come out at a better time. After keeping myself from checking out most of the singles prior to its release, I pressed play on the album for the first time as I started my morning walk through a picturesque valley in the Swiss Alps. Allowing Two People’s music to adorn my quest for breakfast was nothing short of perfection; from the peppy beats of ‘Loud’ and ‘A Taste’ to dreamier cuts such as ‘Been a Little While’ and ‘Under the Hood’, each aspect of the record capitalises on the band’s newfound sense of immediacy in the best possible way. As I exited the local bakery, however, it was the second chorus of ‘The Line’ that completely floored me. It’s not an obviously grandiose moment, not one of directly distinguishable beauty, but rather one of astonishing subtlety in a song that still manages to retain [i]Second Body[/i]’s instantly gratifying nature. A simple drum beat, some low piano notes and Phoebe Lou’s heavenly croons: everything fits, everything feels right. It’s the moment that solidified Two People’s second body of work as something truly special, connecting the organic beauty of the album with that of the mountains towering over me as the replay button and a paper bag filled with fresh croissants and yoghurt accompanied me on my walk back. – JesperL
