Taking inspiration from all forms of music, the style of Desperado Pilots comes from a blend of various and, at times, polarized influences; all filtered through the unique voice of Philip Beaton and the wet, distorted guitar tones that he grew up with. Idolizing the great modern rock bands of our time like Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, and Muse, this is a band that finds rock music at it’s best when it has one foot in the fringe and one in the mainstream. It’s a mark they are trying to hit with their debut EP “EL(EP)HANT”, a three-song romp through the serene, the abrasive, and the groovy. Slightly tongue-in-cheek lyrics, with strange imagery and messages of hope in times of despair will lead you through massive walls of electric guitars, smooth bass and thunderous drums.
Just weird enough to raise an eyebrow, rocking enough to get down with, and honest enough to believe in, Desperado Pilots are taking on the world.
