Pilot Speed

Canada's Pilot Speed learned a lot from their last release. Instead of the five to eight minute long epic songs, they decided to tighten their songs and create "art songs with hooks." And that deliberate decision may be the determining factor of commercial success for these guys. But they haven't lost themselves by focusing their sound though. It's the hooks that provide Pilot Speed's new album Wooden Bones with its heart and soul. Lead singer Todd Clark says he felt it important to write songs that could really fit well in any environment.

Pilot Speed's sound is piano-driven indie rock, much in the same vein as Coldplay. Clark's vocals are at times hushed, as in lead single Put the Phone Down, but then can explode on arena sized ballads such as Light You Up. These guys have finally found a sound that fits them. Wooden Bones comes out next week, and from the tracks I've heard so far, Pilot Speed are one Grey's Anatomy montage from really hitting it big.
