PIL & BUE – new single out
As we are approaching winter and darkness lingers in every corner of the North, Pil & Bue -the modest duo with the massivesound, is set to release yet another colossal single.
‘You are the Universe’ is a fierce and powerful rock track, with strong melody lines, powerful drums, and hefty guitars.
It is both catchy and convincing and is truly a song that allows you to let goof all the heavy loads and just breath and live in the moment for a wonderful and enforcing 4 min.
Pil & Bue comments: “Every now and then, everything just feels perfect. Your, or our, entireexistence.It may be for just a glimpse, of some wonderful yet powerful seconds. But right then, you are the universe”
With one of the best vocalists from Norway, Petter Carlsen, on vocals and guitar, and Gøran Johansen slaying the drums, they are an explosion of hard rock.
With subtle, but pronounced references to artists like Placebo, Deftones, Sigur Rós, Anathema and Mars Volta, Pil & Bue delivers “Hard, gloomy & joyful music…” (Metal Hammer NO) based on topics like memories, childhood aspirations, use of imagination, video games, and the intriguing online rabbit holes.
The band ́s raw and melodic music quickly struck a note with Hollywood director Tommy Wirkolawho included the Pil & Bue single “You Win Again” in his now cult-status movie “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival January 2014.
Also, their single “Fire” from their second album “Forget the Past, Let’s Worry About The Future” is featured on the end credits of Hollywood/Netflixblockbuster “What Happened To Monday” (2017).
