P!lot is an indie pop project with a quirky and ethereal sound — accented by a bevy of unique instruments: Casio synths, ukulele, mellotron, omnichord and more. P!lot has been compared to artists like Chairlift, Regina Spektor, Frankie Cosmos, Oh Land and Geneva Jacuzzi.

Originally, Brooklyn-based, P!lot flew down South in 2019, and now resides in Charleston, SC. Erel Pilo leads the project by writing the songs and singing leads. She often performs alongside other muscians as well as solo. The songwriting is inspired by science, literature, relationships and French Yé Yé. With a background in movement, she incorporates dance, roller skating and aerials into performance.

P!lot's next single, “Fake Hangover” comes out March 29th with an album by the same name set for release 11/22/2024. The album is an exploration of themes like femininity, felines, and fame.

Remember the twee, romantic charms of Chairlift? Erel Pilo has that sort of doe-eyed guy/girl romantic pop song going on, but with an acoustic guitar instead of a synthesizer. ” - Stephen Carradini
