PLS PLS ME is a Brooklyn-based queer electro pop duo who came together on a grey New Year’s Day in 2016. While launching QUEER MF, a local showcase and party for queer music, singer/multi-instrumentalists Jimi Fish and Jessie Torrisi bonded over writing songs about sex, longing, and surviving the age of Trump.
Their love of eclectic, hip hop-inflected production and otherworldly harmonies crystalized with last year's long-awaited debut EP, Too Late. Jammerzine called them "a slow melodic burn... that hits in all the right places." Analogue Trash calls their modern dreampop "very doomy, but a lot of fun." And OVRLD says Pls Pls Me are a cross of "early XX and Everything But the Girl." Their latest track Water Torture, which is a send-off for Trump, is a departure from their summer love anthems.
But this band has sonic range. More than anything, Pls Pls Me is the story of a deep friendship formed over late nights at the piano, while pondering the power dynamics of love and the art of being queer. Their follow-up EP, produced by indie songstress Sarah Jaffe, is due out in Summer 2021.
