Biography

pILLOW tHEORY is NYC quartet who delivers a high-powered dynamic sound and performance while successfully genre-hopping under the alternative rock umbrella (electro, metal, punk, pop). They've shared bills with TV On The Radio, Savages, Solange, Questlove, Living Colour, Dismemberment Plan, Betty Who and Halestorm to name a few and have received accolades from Rolling Stone, Village Voice, Time Out NY and Afro-Punk.

pILLOW tHEORY collaborated with sonic genius Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, NIN) for their album Outpatience in 2007. Working with Albini on Outpatience allowed the band to successfully explore a full cohesive raw sound. The album earned the band critical praise and a strong, loyal audience with the singles "Jealous" and "Reason" licensed to several television programs and "Four Drinks" in the 2012 film Dealer. Also in 2012, pILLOW tHEORY released their Meltdown album, produced by front man/composer Kelsey & Slimmy Neutron (50 Cent, Lil Wayne, LL Cool J.) For the band’s next sonic chapter, Kelsey mixed pILLOW tHEORY’s organic sound with unexpected refinement. Legendary producer Ron Saint Germain (U2, Muse, Tool, Soundgarden) came on board to mix the first single and opening track “Blipsters & Buppies.” With its unforgettable chorus, infectious guitar riff and a video skewering the hipster scene, this song has quickly become a fan favorite along with the sensual trip-hop, pop rock track "Warm The Blood".

They were selected to perform at festivals SXSW, Central Park Summerstage, CMJ, Northside and CBGB. Currently they are in the studio recording their follow up to Meltdown to be released for Summer 2015.






Lyrics

Blipsters & Buppies

Written By: Kelsey Warren

I don't fit within the situation
Analyze, scratch my head
Wall-flowering somewhere in a dark corner
Trying hard not to pull the sarcastic

Searching up above all the minds that sink
I'm just busy here drinking my drink
Something's stuck inside your eyes
You're all so serious

I don't wanna practice fake religion
In this party scene addiction
Velvet rope this clique
I'm cooler than you but you just don't know it yet

We are the last of the first to know
Leaders who follow blow by blow
Power elite with ebbs and flows

We're the last of the first to know
Leaders who follow blow by blow
While the whole world keeps ticking

My glasses fog from the sight of this
Don't know my right from left
It's just a verbal masturbation
I'm trying hard not to pull the sarcastic

Searching up above all the minds that sink
I'm still busy here drinking my drink
Something's stuck inside your eyes
You're all too serious

I'm the nightmare in your Cosby dream
See you smirk yeah you smile at me
This party needs a porno
And a bottle of absinthe

We are the last of the first to know
Leaders who follow blow by blow
Power elite with ebbs and flows

We're the last of the first to know
Leaders who follow blow by blow
While the whole world keeps ticking

Subculture revolution
Subculture prostitution
By any means necessary

You’re all so serious

Warm The Blood

Written By: Kelsey Warren,Danos Ettrick

Slipping inside a warm soft place
Sinning along with angel face
Full sensory, tongue cheek flattery
Savoring all this flesh and heart
That's blessing me

Shatter the flaws
Only to flaunt my new flame
I'm not alone she always ascends inside me

Warming the blood
I wanna flaunt my new flame
I'm not alone, never alone
She lives inside of me

Breaking the seal upon my glass
Follow the voice and kiss that's vast
Still calling me, sacred energy
Swallowing pride, overcoming fear
I want this here to last

Shatter the flaws
Only to flaunt my new flame
I'm not alone she always ascends inside me

Warming the blood
I wanna flaunt my new flame
She warms the blood, she warms the blood
All of the blood in me

All of the blood in me
