Pill is the young collaboration between artists Veronica Torres, Andrew Spaulding, Jonathan Campolo and Benjamin Jaffe. PILL’s recordings combine fast, forward-thinking lyrics that express social unrest with a painterly contempt for rock formalism. The four-piece draw from a deep pool of influences including New York City noise, krautrock, Sun Ra modalities, telepathic dreams and all six senses.
Pill found each other in Brooklyn NY, its members colliding in the city’s ever-changing DIY community. Their music is a pulsing protest of anguish and desire clotted with arrhythmia and dissonance. It’s a howl of freedom that is conscious of that freedom’s cost.

Call it No wave, call it post-punk; at this stage, it’s more modern-day folk or protest music for what New York City has become: the capture and distillation of an energy and friction that comes from living amongst so many people in such a confined, creatively charged yet conflicted space.
Resist the temptation to bottling the creative endeavors of Pill into any one container; these are the unrestrained sounds of four musical conspirators making equal contributions based on concepts of “physicality, catharsis, and psychic release.”

The band’s first official single, Hot Glue / A.I.Y.M?, contains raw, sax-fueled blasts of noise. Veronica Torres sings with an assured snarl, making sure you can hear each biting lyric through the wiry melodies and clattering grooves. The result is an idiosyncratic sound that is irreverent, lucid and heavy. Fans of X, Romeo Void and Bush Tetras will find a lot to love in these two tracks.

“Convenience” is Pill’s debut album. It explodes the concepts of their previous recordings through a field of emotional and political upheaval, where something that makes life easier for one group of people might make life harder for another. It’s this very skepticism of modern comfort that drives the music Pill makes; an unsettled sound that employs a tension-release, ouroboric dynamic.
