Tropes associated with Strawberry Switchblade

  • Author Phobia: Invoked. "Trees and Flowers" is about Jill's agoraphobia.
  • Cover Version: Dolly Parton's "Jolene".
  • Japandering: "Ecstacy (Apple of My Eye)". Done for the Money, Dear Boy.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Frequently. "Since Yesterday" is a perky number about a broken love affair. "Trees And Flowers" is a gentle pastoral number about agoraphobia.
  • Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: "Since Yesterday" is a mixture of proto-twee jangly pop and electropop, with a bit of Sibelius thrown in as well.
  • One Album Band:Called "Strawberry Switchblade"
  • Self-Titled Album: "Strawberry Switchblade"
  • Spiritual Successor: Switchblade Symphony, who was also comprised of two women with a goth look and contemporary pop sound (in their case trip-hop). According to Rose Mc Dowell, they initially also wore polka dot dresses but stopped to distance themselves from Strawberry Switchblade and to more plausibly deny influence.
  • Strawberry Shorthand: subverted.
