Two Weeks Running are a band fast emerging from the deep depths of the North West and currently enjoying a rewarding year. Hailing from glamorous Bolton, the 5 piece take their cues from favorites such as The Cribs, The Strokes and Foals to name just a few. Their much talked about live performances captured from buzz built on 2013’s ‘Waste Of A Day’ saw the band leap to new and exciting heights. Steve Lamacq singled them out at a BBC Introducing master class and Tom Robinson featured them on the BBC Introducing MixTape on 6music.
Following the release of single ‘Holy Ghost’ back in February, Two Weeks Running received national radio support from DJ’s such as XFM’s John Kennedy and Ian Camfield, BBC Manchester and Lancashire Introducing, as well as making the Absolute Radio playlist as one of Geoff Lloyds’ ‘Unknown Pleasures’. The band were also featured as Artrocker’s ‘New Blood’ as well as being supported by XFM’s associated partner – ‘This Feeling” clubnight. Their live shows have become somewhat essential to witness. Their single launch in Manchester saw scenes of chaos, with a ram packed venue, crowd surfing and even footprints on the ceiling.
The Video for Holy Ghost saw the band pick up ‘Rock The House Best Music Video’ award where they had to collect their award in person at the Houses Of Parliament.
The Human Nature EP also contains tracks ‘Waste Of A Day’ which was picked by Steve Lamacq
as a stand out track at a BBC Introducing Masterclass as well as the track “INHALE / EXHALE” which was picked by Tom Robinson for the BBC Introducing Mixtape. The EP further backs up just how good Two Weeks Running are musically and as a live band.
The ‘Human Nature’ EP was released on Monday 3rd November, 2014 on Martian Pop Records. Available on iTunes now: itunes.apple.com/gb/album/human-nature-ep/id927589056.
