Straight out of Silverlake, Paper Pilots have quickly taken over the local music scene with their soulful version of the “Britpop” sound. Lead by Justin Bocchieri, this band first started gaining an impressive fan base when their cover of the Zombies’ “She’s Not There” was featured on the HBO series, True Blood. This soundtrack was later nominated for a Grammy and secured them the spot of playing live on the show. Paper Pilots have performed locally many times, including our legendary Hunnypot Radio Live show. They have also performed at Echo Park Rising 2015, Chinatown Summer Nights, Blind Date LA, KROQ’s “Locals Only” at The Slide Bar, as well as notable venues such as The Satellite, The Bootleg Theater, and the Troubadour.
Their new video for their song, “The Weather” is as simple as it is hypnotic. Portraying black and white videos of Bocchieri singing, overlain with geometric shapes, the video draws attention to the haunting vocals and flowing instrumentals showcased in this song. Produced by Grammy-nominated engineer and producer, Luke Tozour (Katy Perry, Adam Lambert, Jamie Cullum) and mixed by Grammy-winning engineer, Paul Hicks (Coldplay, Elliot Smith, Paul McCartney), “The Weather” is the latest and greatest from this soon to be everywhere, California band.
