Existential psychedelia, blues rock and an otherworldly sonic landscape textured with electronic sound design by Dave Campbell (62nd Cell).Strange Pill are Zahara Muñoz-Vicens & Ben Hardy, musicians, producers and video artists. Zahara’s vocals have been compared to “a lineage of sensual ‘alt-torch’ singers” Nancy Sinatra, Julie London, PJ Harvey & Martina Topley-Bird, here sounding in the vein of Karen O, with Ben’s leading guitars taking you on a train journey through Slim Harpo-Johnny Kidd-Velvet Underground stops over sunbleached borderlands. Sound designer Dave Campbell creates an otherworldly modern and unique sonic landscape with soft, ethereal, eerie vocals that pierce through a relentless groove.
‘Mamma Doom’ comes out together with an interactive video art piece that allows people to listen to all the musicians individually, a multi-sensorial experience of music as collage -with ‘Mamma Doom’ Strange Pill introduce for the first time a glimpse of their music/art/technology project online. More songs and an album are to be released in the following months with their corresponding interactive video art experience.
