Plus Plus


Introducing ++, a female-fronted doom-gaze band from Chicago, formed in 2022. The group features Abigail (bass and vocals), Dove (guitar), Ethan (drums), and Hunter (synth). The ++ sonic palette is a fusion of doom metal, post-punk, and shoegaze, a unique blend that sets them apart in the musical landscape.

At the core of ++ is Abigail, whose gripping bass lines and heart-wrenching vocals serve as the emotional anchor of the band. Paired with Dove’s low fuzzy guitars, Ethan’s thunderous drumming, and Hunter’s ethereal OP-1 synth textures, the collective energy of ++ delivers a visceral punch that leaves listeners immersed in a realm of intensely beautiful melancholy.
