PLS PLS ME is a queer indie electro duo born in Austin, TX and coming of age in Brooklyn, NY and Oakland, CA. Featuring two heart-on-sleeve songwriters who came together on a grey New Year’s Day in 2016, they sing about sex, longing, and surviving the age of Trump. Jimi Fish is a choirboy with a voice of velvet while Jessie Torrisi is a drummer turned frontwoman and poet. Their music combines hiphop beats, chants, and other worldly harmonies. In late 2018, they released their first single PLS YOU, with Marc Lacuesta from Nashville. Stay tuned for the video – about making up after a fight – featuring same sex make out scenes and shot with a split screen in Jessie’s Brooklyn bedroom.
This November, for Day of the Dead, they released DELILAH, a revenge song about a toxic relationship and how to “protect your heart.” In 2020, their aim to release a single every other month starting with a series of electro tracks created in collaboration with DJs and producers in Toronto, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles. They founded QUEER MF, a party that is about showcasing queer writers and musicians, which they hope to bring to SxSW this year. When not writing songs via FaceTime or touring, they like to hang out in dog parks, crash open mics, make extravagant meals, and be part of queer feminist POC-led movements for change.
