We had the chance to chat with Pilot Rouge, Tennessee cinematic rockers, and when they contacted me about their new Legends EP, it was one of those rare “I’m reading this e-mail in my post-lunch food coma but this music is making me sit straight up in my seat in rapt attention” moments, and as somebody who does this for a living, that happens on a sadly rare basis. With guitars that evoke the depths of human emotion without being layered beyond recognition and a voice that immediately calls to mind Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, Pilot Rouge are a must-hear for any fans of Local Natives or Blind Pilot in your life. Check out their EP via Spotify and our conversation with the band below.

A young band of transplants from all over the South and Northeast, the members of Pilot Rouge began making thoughtful indie-rock music in college in Nashville, TN in the Fall of 2013. Soon after they put out their first recording, "Helen of Troy," a poetic, endearing, and musically beguiling debut.

After more than a year of touring and writing they are out with their second offering, "Legends", produced by lead singer Kevin Terry and Tom Michael (Shannon Labrie) at Zodlounge in Nashville.   Their sound here is bombastic yet groovy; tender yet not without drive; vulnerable and evocative yet grounded, poised and thoughtful. Frequent duets between Terry and keyboardist Allison Louise figure prominently in their music and writing.

Pilot Rouge has been featured on the Billy Block Show, played stages at the Red Gorilla Festival in Austin, TX, BMI showcases, as well as playing well known venues all over the Southeast and Midwest.
