Listen :: PLGRMS - Dreams
Words: Sam Geary
Australian electronic pop duo PLGRMS return with new single, 'Dream You Up', which was released last week via London-based label 0E0E Records.
The pair - Sydney-based singer-songwriter Jacob Pearson and multi-instrumentalist songwriter Jonathan Bowden - take on a somewhat more darker, brooding sound compared to last single 'Gemini' on 'Dream You Up'; a swathe of synth and skittering percussion complementing impressive vocals and smooth production.
Pearson says of the meaning behind the song: "When there’s mystery behind something or someone, it’s so interesting and intriguing. By nature we just can't help ourselves and want to find out what it is. It's the anticipation and the thrill of what we don't understand. I’ve gone through it, but when you unveil the truth, the magic just disappears. So, it's about stopping yourself from understanding it completely, so that thrill can hang around a bit longer."
