Sleeping Pilot deftly weave together musical elements of rock ‘n’ roll, punk, hardcore, and no-wave with intelligent and self-reflexive lyrics which chart a course through contemporary social issues and mythologies. Hard Rock meets Hardcore.

Biography

Formed in the summer of 2004, Sleeping Pilot set out to combine tight songwriting and musicianship with a steadfast commitment to pushing sonic and musical boundaries, in turn effecting one of the most intense and inspiring live performances in Ottawa, even having won an award locally for best live performance. Sleeping Pilot combines their knowledge, experience, and passion from previous musical endeavours to form a powerful, intelligent whole which both looks back to their hardcore, punk, and rock roots and towards future experimentation, innovation, and possibility.

Sleeping Pilot’s debut full length “Panic Sex” promises to both document the raw power of their incendiary live show and demonstrate their formidable song writing abilities. The songs deftly weave together musical elements of rock n roll, punk, hardcore, and no-wave with intelligent and self-reflexive lyrics which chart a course through contemporary social issues and mythologies. Form and content, music and meaning, alternately merge and contract; at times commenting on one another, while at others converging to form a singular, dense expression, the songs are a concentration of ideas and sound.
