Song You Need to Know: PLGRMS, ‘Limbs’

On their second track of the year, “Limbs” Sydney’s PLGRMS have created something special with this cinematic slow-burner.


Sydney duo PLGRMS have continued their stellar year, sharing new single “Limbs” as their second track of 2020.

It was earlier this year that PLGRMS returned to the fold with the powerful “Disappear”. Having shared a number of singles since 2017, the pair – comprising Jacob Pearson and multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jonathan Bowden – were forced to take a bit of a backward step due to Pearson’s chronic back pain.

Thankfully, things improved enough for PLGRMS to return in full force, with “Limbs” proving they’ve still got plenty more in the tank. Equal parts cinematic and soaring, the slow-burning track is a testament to everything the pair have worked towards, and shows a vision of the good things still to come.

“I think we’ve probably all met someone that acts impulsive and fearless, then fixates on maintaining that reputation,” Pearson explains of the track.

“The lyric “Show me who you really are” was my first inclination towards someone who always had their walls up. But to feel someone lower their defences and explore that with you was like finding gold.”

Featuring Luke Davison of The Preatures on percussion, the track features an all-star cast behind the scenes. Produced by Ross James aka upsidedownhead (Vera Blue, E^ST, Thelma Plum), mixed by Dan Grech (Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, Halsey), and mastered by Leon Zervos (Amy Shark, Dope Lemon), PLGRMS were in safe hands the whole way through, with this masterclass of talent helping the track’s beauty truly shine.

While “Limbs” is the second track released by PLGRMS this year, it serves as the latest taste of the group’s next collection of songs, which is on track for release in early 2021. The pair are aiming to share a string of new singles before the year is out, ensuring that fans won’t be waiting too long for new material.

PLGRMS’ “Limbs” is out now.
