Retro-Pop Cuties of Copilot Release Soulful New Single "Look At Me"
We love Copilot here at The Music Mermaid. Comprised of a bunch of good friends working hard to spread joy through their sweet retro-pop anthems, the band is one of the most sincere manifestations of goodness that you’ll see in this industry. They want for nothing but to make listeners smile, a feat they accomplish over and over and over again with every release. Watching Copilot do what they love — so sweetly, so humbly — is something special.
Today, Copilot return with their newest single, “Look At Me,” an exciting blend of both signature Copilot styles. It’s not solely that soulful ballad type and it’s not merely a fun, upbeat romp. Instead, it resides somewhere in the waves of limbo, led by powerhouse pipes that expertly brace the soft comedowns and tackle the flight when they start to soar. Gentle guitar strums are the base here, the slightest buzz of the strings resounding with every pluck, but soon we get quiet details that emerge from seemingly nowhere to join the minimalist arrangement: lush harmony, the distant warble of bass, new vocal tones turning to powerful desperation. At the halfway mark, something changes. We move from soulful pleas to the confidence and color of a more robust arrangement — the introduction of steady percussion fills out the sonic space, giving layers of new flavor to a stirring composition. “Look At Me” has a depth to it that it seems only Copilot can craft. A masterful voice, skilled multi-instrumentation that stands down to let it shine and walks gracefully to the spotlight when it needs to, earnest songwriting — these are the building blocks that compose Copilot. Using them, the band plays a wholesome game of Jenga with every release.
Listen to “Look At Me” below and connect with Copilot on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and their website. And please, if you end up digging their new single, do yourself a favor and take a deep dive into Copilot’s full discography. Those two powerhouse voices can sing anything and they do — from devastatingly sweet ballads (like “Green Lights”) to high-energy retro singalongs (like “Middle Part”). It’s all worth your ears.
