Pls Pls Me Has today released their new EP titled ‘Too Late’. This EP is too damn short. I said it, I know. But, it is. The four tracks that we get are so layered and hook filled that you wish there was more. You feel like that old love left your house during your reconnection.
Having said that, what you get in those brief moments are four songs that each have their own vivid personalities and lush sound about them that they almost feel like different artists that each put their best track on the EP. What keeps the consistency, however, is the solid harmonic, yet distinct vocals of Jimi Fish and Jessie Torrisi. Their voices unite in ways that remind me of Stevie and Christine (Fleetwood Mac), Kate and Cindy (The B-52’s), and Layne and Jerry (Alice in Chains). Each of those duos has a signature vocal sound that instantly gives them recognition upon first listen. Enough Said.
‘Too Late’ is out as of today on all digital platforms.
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.
