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.
Both sides of Hot Glue / A.I.Y.M? (Mexican Summer, 2015) contain 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, Y Pants and Bush Tetras will find a lot to love in these two tracks.
