Sugar For The Pill – Band of the Month (May)

Sugar For The Pill - Band of the Month (May)

Sugar For The Pill are an indie/shoegaze/dream pop band formed in March of 2020 in the city of Athens, Greece.

The band consists of former members of Skinner Box (2012) and Dead Buildings (2009): -Vana Rose (vocals) -Spyros Mitrokotsas (guitars) -Elias K (guitars) -Stefanos Manousis (bass/keyboards) -Konstantinos Athanasopoulos (drums) Their name was inspired, as Shoegaze fans might have already guessed, by the track from Slowdive’s self-titled album (2017).

Debut LP Wanderlust

Their debut, full length album, Wanderlust is a restless mind willing to explore the world by constant movement. This “movement” implies a gradual release, away from the stillness of the routine, from soul restricting relationships and environments, through a dreamy, hovering journey that will create the memories of a lifetime.

Sugar for the Pill’s music feels like “floating”. At times with a wider, dynamic momentum created by a well reined wall of sound, influenced by early 90’s shoegaze like ‘My Bloody Valentine’ and ‘Slowdive’, and at times like a soft travelling cloud of heavenly female vocals that will remind you of dreamy indie/ alternative bands, like ‘Cocteau Twins’ and ‘Lush’ and even a bit of ‘Interpol’, Sugar for the Pill levitate through this earth, painting their emotions along their path.
