Both were born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since they met there, they started making music together, traveling and living in some different parts of the world. It wasn't until the year 2018, that they started sharing their music with the world. Their sound is electronic rock, with a blend of each of their own musical tastes and influences mainly combining psychedelic rock with several electronic music genres. They grew up listening and loving music from Syd Barrett, The Doors, Lou Reed, Jimmy Hendrix, Nirvana, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, Einstürzende Neubauten, Nine Inch Nails, Aphex Twin, Joy Division, Sumo and Fela Kuti among others conforming an extensive list. In these past years they focused in listening, discovering and connecting with other great indie artists.

Many of these artists also described 2:45's music saying that it contained elements of indie rock, shoegaze, post-punk, indie pop, world music and kraut rock.
