Real good and real short

It’s intense, moving and genuinely powerful, "Bite Your Nails" by Pilotlight is a great first track for a full-length album. Too bad that there is only one other song on the disc, which is even better. "The Shortest Route to Happiness is a Straight Line" is eerily similar to Radiohead’s "No Surprises" with the bell-like intro that carries the song throughout. I would love to hear a new full-length album from this quartet, as this is just a taste-test of what these Londoners are capable of. Pilotlight are like a fusion of Radiohead and Muse with a hint of Hope for the States, with all the passion and none of the pompousness. Watch out for these guys; they’re talented enough to cause the next British invasion.
