Pilotlight are an  Alternative / Indie / rock band hailing from the UK (Dublin / London). They were formed back in 2006 and have already caused a little bit of a stir, with their music being used for last summers world cup promos on RTE television, (The Irish equivalent to the BBC).
The Post War Musical is the bands debut, and what a debut! The production is incredibly polished and the songs are beautifully constructed. The band really manage to pull off that dark brooding atmospheric type of sound, and their sound has been compared to that of early Radiohead and even Cold Play.
I'm not sure how they manage to pull it off but each and every song has both a sense fragility and strength, and listening to this album is a wonderful experience as the band take you on a journey through each and every track.
 
Highly recommended, Just sit back and chill!!
