Bailiff - "Helicopter" (MP3) (exclusive)

Driven by killer guitar riffs and its unique narrative perspective, the rollicking "Helicopter" by rock outfit Bailiff is can be downloaded here exclusively at PopMatters.

Like many bands in this Kickstarter-obsessed age, rock outfit Bailiff funded their latest outing, the genre-melding Remise, through a fan-funded campaign. Of the many tunes that came from the successfully funded EP sessions is the wickedly cool "Helicopter", which stands as one of Remise's most driving moments. With propulsive, infectious guitar riffs at the forefront, the band brings a great deal of energy in the track's concise, four-minute runtime, during which vocalist/guitarist Josh Siegel deals with some heavy lyrical matter.

"'Helicopter' is narrated from a soldier's point of view who is tired of being in battle. I felt more comfortable singing about the topic of war from that perspective rather than from the 'old wise observer on the mountaintop' perspective that some heavy topics are written from. Despite the dark lyrics, there is something uplifting or empowering in the drum and bass groove though that makes the song feel good in a way. I like songs that sort of pull in a couple directions".


Remise is out now.
