Peel Dream Magazine’s new single “Pill” merges fuzzy shoegaze with a hint of modern-swaying psych. This single is the premiere track from the band’s forthcoming sophomore record, Agitprop Alterna, which will be out April 3rd, 2020 via Slumberland Records. The album thematically takes a deeper look at topics surrounding the power of personal freedom over manipulation, and “Pill” specifically examines the “inundation of performances of normalcy and fulfillment that fuel our desire to consume – self-medication for the pain of doubt, want and need.”
Peel Dream Magazine was musically set in motion by NYC’s Joe Stevens, who initially started the project as a solo pursuit. After releasing his 2018 debut album Modern Meta Physic under the moniker, Joe evolved Peel Dream Magazine into the more permanent form of a band that will be touring in 2020 and heard on the forthcoming album.
The release of the band’s new song “Pill” is supplemented with an equally-psychedelic retro music video (below).
