Lurking beneath the melodically tough exterior of Sierra Pilot’s newest single, “Alive,” is a straightforward message about living life to the fullest, and not letting it beat you down.
“It’s about celebrating the little things, and being grateful for what you have”, explains Sierra Pilot founder and frontman Taylor Leith. “If you can find one good thing to be grateful for or make one good thing happen in the run of a day, you’re already miles ahead of so many people. Just the very notion of being alive; you get another day and another chance.”
Bolstered by the same guitar-driven spirit that propelled the Seattle music scene in the early 90s, “Alive” pairs the Waterloo, Ontario-based band’s impeccable knack for melody with an anthemic refrain that at once sounds fresh and familiar.
