is a post-pop band from New York & Paris.  Equally influenced by 80’s punk (The Misfits, Minor Threat), early 90’s british alternative (The Cure, Cranes, PJ Harvey), & modern art-rock (Radiohead, Gogol Bordello, Devotchka); the results are shoegazing guitars, Cat Power-esque style vocals, tight drumming, & driving bass lines – everything you could want from pop oriented music.

Starting in 2014 as a sequel to Plumerai, the band members are Eliza Brown (vocals), Mickey Vershbow (drums), & brothers Martin Newman (guitars & keyboards) & James Newman (bass).  Brown brings sweet floating vocals to the mix.  Vershbow gives us dynamic drums with subtlety & strength.  Martin Newman provides the heavily reverbed guitars around which the songs are built. James Newman brings the percussive bass lines that help hold things together.
