Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with the dynamic duo of electro-pop known as Pls Pls Me. I am so glad we caught this interview on video as well because Jimi Fish and Jessie Torrisi (the minds behind the music) is such a good collaboration that it shows on the video. They have bonded creatively in ways I wish more artists would. Think Ying meeting Yang. You will learn that and more in this interview for sure.
We also get to listen to their new single titled ‘Too Late’ (Spotify below) which is the evidence of what I said above. The track is a slow melodic burn through a marvelous hook that melts the current isolation and hits you in all of the right places in such a good mix that it feels like the music surrounds you. This is a representation of what a new decade can bring.
About Pls Pls Me
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 debut single “PLS YOU,” which OVRLD exclaimed was a cross of “both early XX and Everything But the Girl.”
Their long-awaited debut EP, Too Late (out on October 9th), only leans further into their kaleidoscopic sound, finding the duo pairing a trip-hop single about taking on the system (“Checked Out”) with a Lolita tale delicately intertwining Fish and Torrisi’s voices and a summer love song fit for a modern update of a John Hughes soundtrack.
More than anything though, Too Late is a fulfilling encapsulation of two friends and collaborators honing their craft over countless FaceTime chats and recording sessions, destined to score hangouts in dog parks, crashing open mic nights, making extravagant meals, and being part of movements for change.
Too Late arrives October 9th on all digital platforms.
