Pirates of Radio is an original hopepunk music project created by five artists who have never met during this process. Expect the unexpected.
A unique music project started back in 2017 by 5 musicians all living in different parts of the world (Germany, South Africa, Dubai, Thailand).
The guys have never been in a room together or made eye contact, and create collaboratively only via whatsapp and the cloud. They write and record all their music in their own remote studio setups - a riff or melody will be shared, a beat added, a bass riff tested, lyrics written and this process will repeat until finally birth is given to a new creation.
progressive / energetic / experimental / MELODIC
Pirates of Radio is an experimental project - no creative limits or boundaries are set. That said, a common style and energy is emerging, based on the ethos and identity of #hopepunk - progressive rock with definite anthemic pop sensibilities, tunes that get you to think and then dance... The name Pirates of Radio has its origins in the story of the British Rock & Roll pirates in the 60s, and the band have the same goal - spreading their tunes across the airwaves, no matter what.
Pirates of Radio have released 3 singles to date - BEEHIVE RIOT (2020), SWAN SONGS (2020), GLOW (2020), but the band have recorded quite a collection of songs, and the library is growing by the day.
