The Kingston, Ontario, band of two simply began as an experimental solo act for multi-instrumental/vocalist Paul Saulnier (he's the PS in PS). But after Saulnier grew tired of the drum machine he used in his performances - he also used guitar, keyboard, and many other whimsical instruments - he sought out drummer Benjamin Nelson and soon the duo exploded onto the Canadian music scene with their weird pop sound turned indie rock anthems. The success - surprising for Saulnier and Nelson - prompted the pair to expand their hometown performances across the nation.


The band received global praise after the release of their debut album Meet Me at Muster Station in October 2010. The album - an homage to their hometown - appeared on the longlist of nominees for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize.


Without skipping a beat, PS I Love You pleased fans and critics alike with their sophomore album Death Dreams, released in May 2012. Now touring around Canada, the United States and soon the world, the guys have much to be proud of, including once again making the cut as a 2012 Polaris Music Prize longlist nominee.


Back in 2011, PS I Love You stopped by George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight to perform a cover of Robyn's Cry When You Get Older. Take a look:



A little later on that year, the duo sat down for a chat in Studio Q with Jian Ghomeshi, gave a guitar lesson and performed their hits Facelove, Butterflies and Boners and 2012. Check it out:
