Zoo Pilot is a recently formed indie rock/pop band based in Austin, TX. Comprised of former members from Sleep Station (Eyeball Records), Starboard Green, and The Grinches, they combine the classic pop sounds of bands like the Beatles, Kinks and Beach Boys with current indie sensibilities to create a unique and timeless sound.
The two main members, best friends Brad Paxton (lead vocals and guitar) and Josh Nichols (bass, keyboards, and drums) had been playing together and separately over the years before forming the band in 2012. With the group writing, recording and producing the songs from Brad’s home studio in South Austin, Zoo Pilot brings engaging storylines, complex arrangements and intricate melodies and harmonies back into the modern pop fold.
As they set to simultaneously release their first two full-length albums in 2015, the group looks forward to bringing their infectious sound and sometimes left-of-center lyrical themes to the many music fans of Austin and beyond.
