Plushgun is an indie rock/New Wave/Synth-Pop band founded by Dan Ingala located in Brooklyn, New Yorkmarker. The current lineup of the band is Ingala, Taylor Armstrong on guitar and Matt Bogdanow on drums. The band gained prominence when its music was featured in episodes of the web series We Need Girlfriends. After those videos, the band quickly gained an online following.

On May 15, 2008 Plushgun announced a record deal with Tommy Boy Entertainment to release the band's first and self titled vinyl EP, which was released on August 19, 2008. In a positive review, Orlando Sentinel music critic Jim Abbott wrote that the lead song "Just Impolite" "manages to be breezy and atmospheric" and other tracks "boast plenty of shimmering keyboards, but enough melody to sing along."

Their first album, Pins and Panzers, was released on February 17, 2009. Plushgun was the website OurStage's first artist to get signed by a prominent record label after Ourstage flew the band out to South by Southwest music festival where Tommy Boy spotted Plushgun. "Just Impolite" was featured on the MTV show The City on December 29, 2008. "How We Roll" was featured on an episode of MTV's The Real World: Brooklyn.
