Copilots are an independent rock band from Vancouver, B.C. Individually, the member's musical tastes are widely varied, but as a band the music of Copilots has its roots firmly planted in the many facets of rock and roll. Pop, folk, punk anf classic rock all inform their familiar yet unique sound. The songs feature adventurous, captivating melodies and dream-like lyrical images. The energetic rhythms that propel the band, whether complex or simple, always feel seemless and natural. Their self-titled, 2007 debut album has captured these qualities beautifully.
Copilots are a part of Vancouver's creative and independent music community which includes: Inhabitants, Veda Hille, Josh Martinez, Fond Of Tigers, Dark Blue World, Karen Foster, Swanvista, Tony Wilson, Drip Audio, The Hive Studios, Zula Productions and many others...
"The tricky time changes, the loping rhythms, the heraldic trumpets all spell postrock, but beneath the surface of the Copilots' debut there's something stranger and wilder...not since the Meat Puppets came along has a modern rock record simmered with this kind of lysergic heat...always in fresh form...this is not retro psychedelia."
- The Georgia Straight
"...Copilots indulge a welcome combination of tightly structured songs and the urgency that arises when a group explores its sonic canvas without fear. They are that too rare type of band that knows the way around an instrument, but can compose an engaging song without sounding like the music is being over-thought..."

"I can't even name any mainstream, major label bands that I can readily compare this to..."
