Biography

Change the rules of the game, take the face from the name, trade the soul for the fame...I'm an Atari Pilot.

"One of the most talked about new arrivals on the Swindon music scene, Atari Pilot have created a real stir before they have even played their debut gig... If heavy dance grooves and belting rock anthems being alchemized into brilliant tunes sounds like your sort of thing then check out their music.." Green Man Music

Atari Pilot is an exciting new band from the UK. A singular voice that combined with a cinematic sound sends you on a unique musical journey into the night...

After releasing the acclaimed debut album 'Navigation Of The World By Sound' Atari Pilot have made their long awaited live debut in 2012. It began with a collection of simply great songs and no rules. Themes of taking chances, making choices and paying prices littered the lyrics , whilst musically, genre boundaries were ignored and the songs were given sonic freedom.

'Atari Pilot is the sound of someone searching for something or someone, trying to the put the pieces together in order to escape or overcome whatever they struggle against. The songs are a like series of film scenes , where we're in that particular moment at that particular time. The Narrative and the music combine to give the songs their energy.'

The first song to be released was Game Change. It has already received radio airplay in the UK on Amazing Radio and spent over two months atop the Tunecrank charts.

'Game Change is the introduction, the invitation. Setting out on the Journey - full of energy and attitude , but with no guarantees on how things will play out.'

Sweeping strings and pounding dance floor beats, all swamped with gloriously fuzzy bass and a vocal that you wont be able to shake off for days, this is just the beginning.

Now a fully fledged live act, Atari Pilot are now preaching their gospel, bringing the full scope and excitement of their music to the live stage.

The band have now been booked to perform at The Summer Breeze Festival, Swindon Big Arts Day and The Broad Town Big Gig This Summer.

Lyrics

Game Change

Written By: Atari Pilot

I want to live in outer space
That's the one place that can't let me down
But I can't even look you in the eyes
While i decide how to lose myself tonight
But I'm going out in style
It's a matter of survival
I've compartmentalised my nights

The Heart is pounding
The Music's getting louder
The Drink's are getting stronger
This is how to feel alive

It's so easy to judge when it's somebody else

Change the rules of the game
Take the face from name
Trade the Soul for the fame
I'm an Atari Pilot
I can only navigate the world by sound
I am quiet, I am loud
I am real and I am nothing
I can't leave sacrifice behind

The Heart is pounding
The Music's getting louder
The Drink's are getting stronger
Is This is how to feel alive?
I've compartmentalised

I'm just trying to leave the world
I'm just trying to leave the world

The Heart is pounding
The Music's getting louder
The Drink's are getting stronger
Is this how to feel alive?
And when outer space it takes me
It will never let me down
And gravitiy won't hold me
It won't tie me to the ground

Change the rules of the game
Change the rules like an Atari Pilot

Rip The Floor Up

Written By: Atari Pilot

Saturday night everybody's got their glitz on
Nobodies thinking about going home
Finish your drinks we'll get some more
Build up the confidence to hit the floor
I think i hear my favourite song
I'm going to own this place tonight

Rip the floor up bring the club to it's knees
It's like the truth when we dance
Everybody's released

So we hit the dance floor like there's nothing else to live for
How can we stay this way?
Forget the nine until the five
It's not a crime to be glad you're alive
Just want a rush just want a ride
Leave the real world on the outside

Just wanna rip the floor up bring the club to it's knees
It's like the truth when we dance
Everybody's released
I don't know how to move
I don't know how to stop

Hit the dance floor like there's nothing else to live for
Go on and hit the dance floor like there's nothing else to live for
Just want a rush just want a ride be in the right place at the right time
Just want a rush just want a ride leave the real world on the outside
Leave the real world on the outside

Just wanna rip the floor up bring the club to it's knees
It's like the truth when we dance
Everybody's released

Stay Yourself

Written By: Atari Pilot

Pray for rain, pray for anything that your keeping safe
In the nights when your dignity is gone
I'm feeling like surrender and I see it in your face
But lately baby I don't scare so easy

And you don't have to turn into something
You don't have to turn into anyone
You don't have to stay if you want to
You don't have to stay anywhere at all

Now I say Stay Yourself
I know you've been knocked down and out so many times before
The scars you try to hide just make you seem more beautiful
You know that it's time for you remember just who you are
Yes it's time for you to remember just what you are

Pray for rain, pray for anything that your keeping safe
In the nights when your dignity is gone
I'm feeling like surrender and I see it in your face
But lately baby I don't scare so easy

And you don't have to turn into something
You don't have to turn into anyone
You don't have to stay if you want to
You don't have to stay anywhere at all

Now I say Stay Yourself
I know you've been knocked down and out so many times before
The Scars you try to hide just make you seem more beautiful
Stay Yourself
Stay Yourself
You know that it's time for you remember just who you are
Yes it's time for you to remember just what you are
