Baleia Piloto was born in 2017 between conversations and wanderings of three friends, next to the sea wall that connects Cascais to Lisbon. In these meetings came a creative impulse to make songs that mixed old memories with sonic landscapes yet to be explored. Antero Assane (Switchtense, Prague, Airbuzz) plays the drums and marks the pulse of the songs. David Matos (Prague, Airbuzz) improvises bass melodies on bass and synthesizer. Nuno Lopes (Prague) holds the guitar and dreams of timbre at his fingertips. Everyone sings. They create modern music from old memories. Songs with curves and setbacks, where languages are mixed to perceive the silence, because it is in the pauses that they gain momentum.
“Irmão do Meio”, the 4th single came out on May 13, 2021, an ethereal song where dreamlike landscapes and environments that explore new sounds are drawn. The band is now preparing the release of the 1st album of originals to be presented on the 17th of June at Village Underground in Lisbon.
The first part will be performed by David Pires (ex-Os Pontos Negros) who returns to perform solo, ten years later, with a handful of new and reassuring songs, among them the single ‘Fado-Redenção’.
Includes CD offer.
