Pellumair are two 24-year-olds from Southampton. The pair met in 1997 through a mutual friend and his effort to put together a band. Whilst they connected, sharing a love of Galaxie 500, Sonic Youth and Low, they realized the outfit was offering them little. In the summer of 2003 the pair had an unplanned, unsober jam, both offering their works in progress and recording the results. The playback pleasantly surprised them. The jams became more regular, the songs grew in number, and Pellumair was formed. Their music is full of heady, swirling melodies recalling the vintage harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel and the subliminal vocal wash of MBV, all of which combine to give them a unique, haunting and endearing sound.
