Post-punk trio Plum formed in 2022 when Jeff Kelley, Karissa Talanian, and Heather Perry bonded over their shared appreciation for no wave, krautrock, and indie sleaze. The band crafts a distinctive sound blending upbeat danceable grooves, dissonant riffs, and melodic bassliness. Their songwriting explores themes such as modern alienation, desire, and obsession.

Winter of 2023 saw Plum embarking on a ten-show tour in Japan, where they played alongside luminaries such as Keiji Haino as well as members of Boredoms, Acid Mothers Temple, and Les Rallizes Denudes.

Currently Plum is gearing up to release their debut LP and tour across the Midwest and East Coast in the summer of 2024.
