Sounds | Pil & Bue, True Disaster

Laat me het zo stellen: ik blijf dit duo leuk vinden, al is de (zeer aangename) verrassing van bij de eerste beide nummers er nu wel af. True Disaster is nog steeds voldoende energiek, ruimschoots rock&roll. Enkel die voor mijn oren erg jonge stem begin ik wat minder te vinden. Ik hou blijkbaar toch van wat meer 'maturiteit' wat vocals betreft. En toch blijf ik de twee nog steeds leuk vinden.

The World is a Rbbit Hole verschijnt op 3 september via Indie Recordings. Luister ook naar: Select 2 Players


As summer draws to an end, Pil & Bue prepare for fall with the release of one last single before they drop their new album The World is a Rabbit Hole on September 3rd.

PIl & Bue's new single "True Disaster" is a powerful and emotional exposition of Pil & Bue´s fight against their own inner demons.

Petter comments:

“True Disaster is a kind of inner monologue where the best version of oneself takes a stand against the worst version. In other words, the ambitious and confident part of the self, let the inner demons know who really has their hands on the wheel.

The inner demons are your greatest enemies, they can rob you of your will, spark, and faith. True Disaster is a declaration contesting that they will never truly succeed because love and ambition will triumph. Every time.”

About Pil & Bue:

Consisting of Gøran Johansen on drums and percussion and with one of Norway’s most unique and powerful voices, Petter Carlsen, on vocals and baritone guitar; Pil & Bue deliver an explosion of raw, hard, and melodic rock with a twist of darkness.

With subtle, but pronounced references to artists like Placebo, Deftones, Sigur Ros, 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 Wirkola who 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 second album “Forget the Past, Let’s Worry About The Future” is featured on the end credits of Hollywood/Netflix blockbuster “What Happened To Monday” (2017)
