Strawberry Pills was formed in Athens/Greece in 2019. Valisia Odell and Antonis Konstantaras both have both been part of Phoenix Catscratch, with whom they released the album “Nectar & Wrinkles” (Dead Scarlet Records). Two of the band’s songs were included in the soundtrack of “Alpes” by the Oscar winning director Yorgos Lanthimos.
After the band’s demise they collaborated on various projects and decided to form Strawberry Pills in 2019. In February of the same year they self-released “Verbal Suicide”, their first official single.
