I’ll go ahead & give away that the name Plumerai comes from a french lullaby about depluming a bird. Plumerai is post-pop band from Boston. 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, Cat Power, Yeah Yeah Yeahs); the results are shoegazing guitars, Cat Power-esque style vocals, tight drumming, & driving bass lines – everything you could want from pop oriented music.
Slugging it out since 2004 going through line-up changes searching for the perfect band & tightening up on tours, they currently consist of 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.
