Susan Says -
TWENTY ØNE PILØTS is an American musical duo that originates from Columbus, Ohio.
The band's current line-up features Joseph and drummer Josh Dun. In 2009 and 2011 they released two albums, Twenty One Pilots and Regional at Best.
The band eventually signed with label Fueled by Ramen in 2012 and under this label the band released their first major release, Vessel, in 2013, followed by their second and most successful album, Blurryface, in 2015. In 2018, after one year on hiatus, the band released their fifth album, Trench.
In 2021, following the stablished storyline on Trench, they released their sixth studio album, Scaled and Icy.
Twenty One Pilots is a band that spans many genres and are generally difficult to assign to just one genre and I love that the band sometimes have referred to themselves as "schizophrenic pop"
I was first introduced to the band when Blurryface was released in 2015, when the singles like Stressed Out & Tear In My Heart came out.
I always like a band that has a unique sound and Twenty one Pilots certainly does. The band won't be everyone's shot of whisky but there are certainly some songs that will appeal to everyone.
Two of my fave Pilots songs are completely polar opposites to one another. Jumpsuit from the Trench album and Level Of Concern, which was released as a promo single to help those in the live music industry in the wake of Covid. While Level of Concern contains lyrics about the stress of Covid, the beat and the melody make you want to smile and dance.
As the band said themselves - "schizophrenic pop"
Scaled and Icy is a feel good album that just simply produce happy endorphins and is a feelgood album that you'd have to be made of stone not to smile and bop your head to!
Standout tracks for me:
Good Day, Choker, Shy Away. Saturday, Mulberry Street, No Chances and Redecorate.
