Harnessing the raw power from their latest release “Keys to the City,” Ontario alt-rockers, Sierra Pilot are dropping the fiery cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky.” But instead of Miley’s speedy disco epic, Sierra Pilot has made the track a frenetic hard alt-rock anthem. 

Beginning with a dark synthy take on the main melody, the track explodes with the heavy bass riff, a chugging guitar line, and a powerful drum beat that will have you playing it on repeat.

 “As soon as I heard the bass line … I heard a heavy guitar playing it,” says lead vocalist Taylor Leith. “To me, this song was written with a hard rock attitude. In fact, Miley’s new album has a lot of rock influence and I think it’s a kickass album.”

Leith’s raspy range soars over the track and the instrumentation is all-encompassing, putting the listener in fight or flight like trance.

Who knew a pop song could be so heavy? 

This is not the first time Sierra Pilot has reimagined a pop hit. They made a killer (once again, heavier rock) version of Billie Eilish’s “you should see me in a crown,” last year. 

As Sierra Pilot, band members Taylor Leith, Jay Thibault and Jason Holzscherer have two EPs—Demons Awake (2018) and The Lies We Sell (2018) and a series of well-received singles under their belt.  

Leith has also opened for various artists such as I Mother Earth, Buckcherry, and Adam Gontier (Saint Asonia, ex Three Days Grace).

Sierra Pilot is excited to finally release the anticipated full-length album later this year, but until then, crank their version of “Midnight Sky,” to 11.
