Synthwave artist/producer PYLOT has officially signed with retro/synthwave label FiXT Neon and is returning in full-force for his sophomore EP, Solai. The project is slated for March 2019 following a series of independent singles and PYLOT’s debut EP, Shadowtask, released with EDM label Monstercat, in 2017.
Created in 2015, PYLOT is a project inspired by music, film and various art styles from the ’80s. Its focus is to provide original music influenced heavily by genres such as synthwave, as well as a diverse range of film and tv show soundtracks. The idea is to engage listeners in a compelling story where the music serves as the soundtrack. With no strict release schedule, this story unfolds periodically in the form of ‘journal entries’ using a graphic novel type format that listeners can read on www.iampylot.com. With each release, PYLOT also publishes original artwork illustrated by Mike Yakovlev.
With a solid background of releasing with one of Canada’s most influential and growing record labels ‘Monstercat’ as well as independently, PYLOT’s music has been streamed millions of times and garnered millions of views across multiple platforms.
Solai’s lead-off single, “Alice” perfectly embodies the diversity and complexity of PYLOT’s music. Opening with attractively nostalgic synth tones, the song breaks into a classic synthwave rhythm laced with electric guitar and chime-like synth melodies for a satisfying blend of instruments and songwriting styles. As a standalone track, “Alice” fully represents PYLOT’s intuitive mastery of the synthwave genre, and as an introduction to the Solai EP, it promises great things to come.
