Autopilot / Press

“Recalling various power-pop trio influences, Autopilot have developed their own unique sound within Saskatoon that defies being pinned down to one genre."”

Chris Morin, - Ominocity (Saskatoon, SK)

"There is a sort of drowned sense of longing about "Last Play" that feels like life on the road across rural Canada, coupled with a vocal sourness that recalls Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell."

Juliette Jagger - Alan Cross (Toronto, ON)

"Diamond Rough is a gem for anyone dedicated to the Canadian indie-rock scene."

Jonathan Webster - The Ontarion (Guelph, ON)

“Diamond Rough showcases a sound that is familiar and comforting but with a twist that is all their own to create a well-rounded alternative rock sound."”

Jessica Romera - The Concordian (Montreal, QC)

"Because we're suckers for any long-haired musician who looks like Jesus and/or any band that shares the same name as one of the most epic Queens of the Stone Age songs known to mankind, so us becoming a fan of this Saskatoon-based band was pretty much a given

Rex Manning Day - Rex Manning Day Music Blog

"The songs have a strong feeling of 90s alternative bands such as Sonic Youth, with a melancholy undertone and lyrics looking at loss, illness and travel on the road - all complimented by a cohesive sound that's easy to listen to."

Katlynn Balderstone - The Sheaf (Saskatoon, SK)

"[Autopilot] manage to craft some solid, guitar driven songs that have mass appeal, but without falling into the trap of clichéd writing and shitty, overly glossy production."

Craig Silliphant - Planet S (Saskatoon, SK)

"This could be the next big thing."

D.J. - - 94.9 The Rock (Toronto, ON)

"[Diamond Rough] offers a rich palette of spunky guitar riffs, punchy power chords, and spacey effects."

Alex MacPherson, - Verb (Saskatoon, SK)

"In the space where power pop meets shoegaze-style guitar layers, Autopilot has crafted an album that's both brilliantly hook-laden and atmospherically dark. Dreamlike vocals dance lightly overtop of pummeling rhythms, while layers of noise and delay trail off intermittently."

Chris Morin - Planet S (Saskatoon, SK)

"There is good recording quality on this album, and all of the members of the band achieve cohesive sound, making this a great listen for the person looking for rebellious gratification."

Eva Cantillo - The Equal Ground

"Overall, Diamond Rough is an album worth listening to. It provides the listener with an emotional journey."

Decostar, - WQAQ 98.1 FM (Hamden, CT)

"This band gives a modern and personal twist to rock music of the 90's as their sound is heavy with drums and guitar all under the gruff, unpolished-yet passionate croons from the lead singer." - Erinn Fung,
