About

P!lot was a Brooklyn-based project that flew down South, and made a home base in sunny Charleston, SC. We have a quirky sound and a penchant for Casios and Omnichords. Watch out for our new single / lyric video coming out 7/11/22 at Chico Feos. Erel Pilo writes the material and sings. A movement lover, she incorporates dance, roller skating and aerial silks into the mix. She is backed up by Russ Green (bass), Matt Varner (drums) and an occasional appearance by John Renaldo (pedal steel) and Michael Ewens (keys).

Our latest album, soon to be released, explores themes of femininity, fame and aeronautics. We’re inspired by the everyday, science, literature, relationships & the French Yé Yé wave. Related to psych rock group Leopard and the Diamond Sky (and label / studio The Secret Cottage), with past (and hopefully future) collaborations with Amelea, Infinitikiss, Kindergarten Rockstar, Oropendola, and Ronan Conroy.

“Erel Pilo is one of the most charming Brooklyn musicians on the block. Her sweet, indie sounds are ethereal, upbeat, and poppy with a hint of folk.” ”

— Feminist Wednesday December 4, 2013

Reminiscent of Kathryn Williams or Norah Jones, but with a unique delicacy and poignant charm, 'Balloon' is a simply dreamy slice of twinkling folk-pop. ”

Gig Slutz October 6, 2014

Remember the twee, romantic charms of Chairlift? Erel Pilo has that sort of doe-eyed guy/girl romantic pop song going on, but with an acoustic guitar instead of a synthesizer. ”
