Hail the Pilot’s primary focus during this project was to create a concept album where all the tracks maintained a kind of cohesivity. They assert, “You can listen to one song and it’s great, but it’s even better if listened to in the context of the album.” Upon one playthrough, is quite clear that the Tacoma natives achieved this goal.
The indie group’s trance-inducing sound is infused with light electric guitar tones and upbeat rhythms. When recording Divider at South Sound Sound Studios, it’s evident that the band took inspiration from the likes of Radiohead and Pink Floyd. Each of the ten tracks blend effortlessly together as minor chapters that are part of the album’s larger story.
The alt-rock band has preceded the premiere of Divider with the release of their single, “Circles”. Singer Jason Iversen, says of the track, “We really feel that this song sets the tone for the whole album. The circular guitar riff paired with the pulsating drums create this really cool heavy groove and raw texture that just begs to be turned up in some nice headphones or blasted in your car.” Hail the Pilot’s 10 track piece has been in the works for some time now and is finally ready to make its landing.
