Listen to “Fruit” the first single off Pill’s ‘Soft Hell’
Soft Hell, Pill’s second full-length album, is a raucous, splintering dispatch from New York City, animated by the madcap ingenuity of a foursome finding a palpable sense of joy and play in expressions of caustic, black humor. Like the contradiction of the album title, which references our acceptance of everyday miseries, it’s a slew of dichotomies, a frenzied cutup. It’s bleeding saxophone and lustrous feedback sounding somehow pastoral, and winking hooks subtly infused with venom.
The post-punk purveyors have shared their first single off the new album, “Fruit,” a coolly pulsing vamp that explores the paralysis of political anxiety. Accompanying the single is a music video from the masterminds behind Studio Kándé:
