Capital Calling: Guitar-pop trio Lady Pills sign to DC label Babe City Records


It’s been a few crazy months for Allston trio Lady Pills. The band turned heads at our South-By-Southwest party back in March, and a few weeks later, were named to the new third stage at May’s Boston Calling, repping our fair city alongside the likes of These Wild Plains, Midriffs, and Nemes.

Now, Ella Boissonnault (vox/guitar), Alison Dooley (vox/bass), and Claire Duhring (vox/drums) have announced that Lady Pills have signed to Washington, D.C. indie label Babe City Records, which will issue their debut album this summer. The LP release follows last fall’s demo EP, which you can listen to below (spoiler alert: it rules).

Here’s what Babe City has to say about their newest band, joining a roster that includes Den-Mate, BRNDA, Young Rapids, and others.


“It’s impossible for us to be more excited to welcome the fantastic Lady Pills to the Babe City Records family. This fresh three-piece formed in October 2015 in Boston, and are readying the release of their debut full-length – Despite – out this summer on Babe City Records.

We first met Lady Pills in Allston, MA, on a bill with Den-Mate this winter. And it’s been best-friendship ever since.
