OK, so I have missed a few Wednesday's but today is Wednesday and I have a new band that has caught my attention. This week's band is...Blind Pilot. This song was featured on NBC's TV show Chuck and I really like it.
Blind Pilot is an American indie pop duo based in Portland, Oregon. The group's single, "Go On, Say It", was chosen to be a Single of the Week on July 7, 2008 on Apple Inc.'s iTunes Store, potentially yielding approximately 2 million downloads. As of July 22, 2008, their debut album, 3 Rounds and a Sound, has reached number 13 on the Billboard Top Digital Albums chart.
The duo demonstrated impressive dedication to the Pacific Northwest's regional environmental ethic with its 2008 bicycle tour. The band members biked (with a van providing transportation of equipment) from Bellingham to San Diego, with more than two dozen stops along the way, including Port Townsend, Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Corvallis, Eugene, Coos Bay, Arcata and Santa Cruz.
They were recently featured on NPR, check out that story here: Hugging Highway 1
