McBurnie and Villiers first met in 2021 through Instagram when McBurnie found Villiers' account, messaged him, and they later started dating.[6] They then formed the group after discussing their shared love for dance artists like Disclosure and Kaytranada.[6] Their first single "soft spot" received over 18 million streams on Spotify[7] most of which coming from the song being used in a large number of TikTok videos, including by celebrities such as Molly-Mae Hague.[8] Rebecca Black also gave a shout-out to the song.[9] Further singles include "on & on"[10] as well as "beachin".[11] These then became the three singles from their debut mixtape "froge.mp3", which they released in October 2022.[2] They performed at the 2022 Reading Festival,[12] and were later signed to Polydor Records.[13] In November 2022, piri and tommy released a cover version of Charli XCX's song "Unlock It" which became popular on TikTok with an accompanying dance.[14] piri & tommy were also announced to be a nominee of BBC Radio 1's Sound of 2023 in December 2022, along with other artists like DYLAN, Cat Burns and FLO.[15] In January 2023, McBurnie announced via TikTok that herself and Villiers had split up.[16] Later that month, she stated that they will no longer be a band, and will go backwards to how their Streaming Platform Releases were formatted for their debut single.[17] They also received Breakup Coverage from Capital Dance.[18]


piri & tommy was founded during the pandemic and has since amassed a potent fanbase due to their popularity on Tik Tok. Their unique sound combines smooth drum and bass beats with poppy vocals to craft something that is onepart liquid DNB and one part bubblegum.


Ironically this may seem to clash with the musical ideal of this sub but I would like to say that I think their work almost harkens back to a really quite innocent period of bouncy, R&B influenced UK garage tinged with pop. I love the likes of Burial but the opposite, almost kaleidoscopic world created by piri is really good.


Having stormed the UK festival season this summer with packed-out sets at the likes of Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds, piri & tommy have also announced details of a headline tour for November. The run of dates features their second headline London show thus far at Scala on November 8th, in addition to appearances at Pitchfork Paris and Manchester Warehouse Project. 041b061a72
