about

PILL makes a triumphant return to Dull Tools to follow up their phenomenal debut LP "Convenience", released on Mexican Summer in 2016. Now they are giving the world their third collection of songs, Aggressive Advertising, where the quartet returns to the cassette format of their first EP, with seven new tracks that emphasize the band's position as one of the most original and captivating bands to come out of New York's post-Vice evicted DIY scene.

As the city quickly becomes a members-only club for the monied, hostile to the artists and culture that attract them, PILL defiantly answer this crisis in declaring "we take strength where order fails." Like the Upright Citizens Brigade (another one-quarter-female four piece) said before them: "Our only friend is chaos." In the case of PILL, chaos is the genderless fifth member.

The mood on Aggressive Advertising ranges from abrasive to laid back, if still on guard. Torres' voice feels natural when both venomous and velvet. On the groovy “Piña Queen”, she imagines herself as a fruit-enforcing matriarch, cooing "She'll take the banana and the mango and she'll make you eat it", which coming for Veronica I take as a promise, not a threat.

Open wide and swallow, because PILL is back with a new dose.

Track Name: Piña Queen
I know she can do it.
She’s been photographed.

She’ll take the banana and mango,
and she will make you eat it.

Piña Queen <3 <3 <3

How much fruit can you balance?
Piña Queen?

Who does her hair?
Round locks falling over her royal body.

How much fruit can you balance?
Piña Queen?

She’ll get all the boys and girls and make them fall in love with her
and take them into a pineapple cocktail.

Oh what a dream!
Piña Queen <3 <3 <3
