PLGRMS – Dream You Up
Last year, PLGRMS made a very strong impression on us with their single Gemini. Today they return to confirm us that we weren’t so wrong to bet on this experimental/electronic pop duo based in Sydney and formed by singer-songwriter Jacob Pearson and multi-instrumentalist songwriter/producer Jonathan Bowden. PLGRMS’ new offering is called Dream You Up and it’s a vivid tune blessed by a playful vibe that mixes electronic and organic elements, a feast of stretched synths, pounding percussions and elegant piano chords intricately woven around the music.
Speaking on the meaning behind the track’s lyrics, Jacob Pearson said: “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.”
