Sahara Surfers - Sonar Pilot (2011)

Quote: (thesirenssound.com) "For the last 4 years the Innsbruck band, Sahara Surfers, have been bringing rock from the desert to the Tyrolean alps. Their debut album “Spacetrip on a Paper Plane” very quickly earned them recognition on the stoner rock scene. The album transformed them from a blip on the radar to one of the most popular stoner rock bands in Austria. The skillful combination of psychedelic hooks and driving riffs typical to the genre, accented by the not so genre-typical female singer, immediately struck a nerve in the scene and has landed on open ears both in Austria and abroad. With their second album, Sonar Pilot, the band has fine-tuned sound and developed a style they can call their own – old school stoner rock spiced with a healthy portion of alternative rock, a splash of psychedelic rock and a pinch of good old Metal resulting in a rich dish not typically seen on a Tyrolean menu.

In [ Sonar Pilot ] Sahara Surfers brings a devil-may-care mash-up of Stoner-rock and Psychedelic rock which feel like a breath of fresh air. The 90’s and the 20’s had been dominated by an array of new genres and cross between major rock elements which disintegrate the isolation of some never-ending meltdown. That said it is high time that somebody launch something stone and concrete that simply bring the good times and give you this rejuvenating feel.

As varied and dynamic as [ Spacetrip On A Paper Plane ] “Sahara Surfers” simply burst out with energy at its very best. [ Sonar Pilot ] maintain a divine momentum which rolled this follow-up [ LP ] to instant glory. Musically, it draws deeply from diverse pools, echoes of 70s hard rock reverberating alongside grunge and stoner-rock sounds.

From electric vibes to stoner riffs, Laid back head nodding motion to downright quirky notes [ Solar Pilot ] remain a colourful title that’s near impossible to dislike. By all means CHECK IT OUT… and if you haven’t had a go on [ Spacetrip On A Paper Plane ] which I seriously doubt, then its where you might want to start. [ QOTSA ] ~ [ Bardo Pond ] ~ [ Grails ] ~ [ Deftones ] and the likes fans all the way."
