P.E. (mems Pill + Eaters) prep debut LP (listen to “Top Ticket” & Liars remix)
Brooklyn band Pill broke up earlier this year but members Veronica Torres, Jonathan Campolo, and Benjamin Jaffe almost immediately teamed up with duo Eaters (Jonathan Schenke and Bob Jones) for new group P.E.. It’s a veritable sonic Reese’s Cup, mixing Pill’s attitude-heavy, skronky, saxy sound with Eaters’ electronic wizardry. P.E. have been playing local shows for a few months now and have just announced their debut album, Person, which will be out March 6 via Wharf Cat. You don’t need to wait that long to get a taste, as they’ve just shared single “Top Ticket” which is has a minimal wave feel akin to The Normal’s classic “Warm Leatherette” but with more of a beating heart. They’ve also handed the track over to Liars who have twisted “Top Ticket” even further. Listen to both of those, and check out the album’s cover art, below.
You can catch P.E. live in Brooklyn at Alphaville on November 26 and that show is with Parquet Courts’ A. Savage, and headliners Military Genius (tickets). Flyer for that is below.
