about

An exciting new sound grips the Bay Area’s music scene as Plush pushes the bounds of genre and style. Plush is a four-piece originating from San Francisco, with members of local SF legends The She’s. While their debut LP, Pine, is a beautiful combination of surf-rock and shoegaze, their auspicious new release, Please, encapsulates a completely different tone, both sonically and lyrically. Lush and warm, it has cinematic quality which suggests, somehow, that each track takes place in a different climate. With the angular and ethereal falsetto of Karli Helm contrasted by the hypnotic and unwavering voice of Eva Treadway, Please echoes a melancholic honesty that captures the album’s heart-breaking, yet insightful versatility, deriving from both Wowee Zowee era Pavement and Painful era Yo La Tengo.

Sonically, the album embraces twinkling guitar tones that are blitzed with spurts of grainy fuzz, flaringly precise and graceful drums, as well as complimentary bass riffs that swirl and swoon each track, working in unison to pin-point these heart-wrenching emotions with clarity and catharsis. After sharing the stage with bands such as Ceremony, All Dogs, Ducktails, Sales and Creative Adult, they have proven their ability to blend seamlessly into wherever they land.

Track Name: Dreams of You
Without any words from you,
what else did you expect to do?
I'd defend you through and through,
as if I had anything left to prove.

After all that I've seen,
I know I have to unlove you.
I got tired of feeling out of touch,
I never felt a part of you.

Now I'm just sick when I think of you,
treated my bed like it was a tomb.
Wake up sick when I dream of you
putting me down like you had the right to.
Track Name: Please Don't Let Me Go
Pick me up, glue my arms back on,
Cut me off cause I’ve grown too long
Love me right, love me less, it’s fine

But please don’t let me go
Something about the way I am,
Something you don’t quite understand
Got so drunk in the August sun
But empty is what I’m running from
Tell me off, see me less, it’s fine
But please don’t let me go
Tell me off, see me less, I’m fine.
Track Name: Go2Bed
How could I not know you're in there?
Tossing, turning there beside me.
Weightless, holding on for dear life.
Wake me when we are done.
Do I ever cross your mind
when you're in the dark at night?
Things you say to me sound right.
Come and play with me.
With you, I'd never start a fight.
With you, I'd never sleep inside.
How could I not know you're in there?
In dreams, you're always there beside me.
I open up when I feel you;
come and stay with me.
Track Name: Sheer Power
Don't let me out of here - I've got room to breathe.
You relish in my fear with hands around my neck,
'cuz I know what I want.

It only lasted a moment - I pray I find it again.
I'm on my hands and knees begging -
I'll crawl to you just say when,
so we can carry on.

Haven't I told you, you should wait,
'cuz shortcuts make for long delays.
Untangle my body like thread in a loom.
Take me hastily or write it off -
right now it's none or all.
I have the sheer power of knowing I still haunt you when I'm gone.
Track Name: Fixes
I don’t wanna lie with you
or lay with you, not anymore
I don’t wanna hold your head up,
let you in, or care for your bedsores
I don’t wanna look at you
or see your picture on the wall
I don’t wanna be the girl
who can’t wake up and walk to the store

And I can’t be okay
When taking names is
All I’ve got to give
And I can’t be the one
To preach to you to
Fight and not give in

You can’t speak, but I’m still listening
You can’t recall just what you’re missing
I don’t wanna lie
I don’t wanna lie

And I can’t be okay
When taking names is
All I’ve got to give
And I can’t be the one
To preach to you to
Fight and not give in

But at 5 am when silence hits
and wells have all run dry
I’ll say "baby blue just walk away"
There’s no fixes left to try
