Bio

November sees the arrival of Sydney duo PLGRMS’ newest instalment, the powerful and driving single ‘Good Friends’, alongside the news of the band’s highly anticipated debut EP, ‘CHAPTER I’, arriving Friday 4th December.

‘Good Friends’ follows recent singles ‘Limbs’ and ‘Disappear’, and further showcases the dark and evocative sonic mastery of multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Bowden and singer-songwriter Jacob Pearson.

Talking about the track, Pearson says “This song isn’t cryptic. It’s not hiding any double meanings. It’s just about recognising that one of two things could happen. And being friends isn’t one of them.”

The track passed through a stellar cast to bring it to life; produced by Ross James aka upsidedownhead (Vera Blue / EʌST / Thelma Plum), mixed by Dan Grech (Radiohead / Lana Del Rey / Halsey), and mastered by Leon Zervos (Amy Shark / Dope Lemon) with The Preature’s Luke Davison on drums.

‘Good Friends’ is the third reveal since PLGRMS’ long awaited return earlier this year, following a forced hiatus in early 2019 as a result of singer Jacob Pearson’s battle with chronic pain. It arrives as the next instalment of the band’s forthcoming collection of songs due out in December, with 2021 carrying the promise of more new music from the duo.

Okay, you've handed me the key to your dark twisted fantasy and I'm opening the door.

you guys are absolutely crushing this broody breed of dark pop! especially when the vocals hit the heights they do in the chorus.
