Embarking on this sonic voyage, formed by the talents of former Cheap Teeth members Joe Laycock and Jack Sharp, Conscious Pilot emerges as a phoenix from the ashes of their predecessors. Joined by stellar musicians from Catholic Action and Pressure Retreat, this supergroup ignites a post-punk revival, infusing their compositions with a pulsating energy that resonates deeply.

At the heart of ‘Epoxy Plains’ lies a commitment to exploration, a desire to traverse uncharted musical territories. Rejecting the gloomy confines often associated with post-punk, Conscious Pilot chooses instead to uplift, to inspire, to incite movement. Lead singer Joe Laycock’s baritone vocals soar, guiding listeners through a sonic landscape where meaning and purpose intertwine with infectious rhythms.

In their focus track ‘Benidorm’, Conscious Pilot delivers a poignant narrative, delving into the complexities of life after military service. Set against the backdrop of Benidorm, the song paints a vivid portrait of an ex-military expatriate grappling with themes of patriotism and regret. With each chord and lyric, the band masterfully weaves a tale that is both haunting and cathartic, culminating in a duet of raw emotion and introspection.

Reflecting on their creative process, the band shares insights into their journey of self-discovery and musical evolution. Each track serves as a chapter in a larger narrative, inviting listeners to join them on a profound exploration of the human experience.
