twenty | one | pilots is a band out of Columbus, Ohio, who recently signed to Fueled By Ramen. According to their Facebook, they describe themselves as ‘Schizoid Pop’, which I do believe is the first time I have ever seen a genre description of that sort. In other words, unique is a good way to describe them.

The band is comprised of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, and have gained interest with audiences for their energetic live sets. They are no stranger to headlining shows and being on the road. Their new EP titled Three Songs dropped on July 17, 2012, which gave the band their debut to the Fueled By Ramen roster. They will be following up this EP with a full-length album titled Vessel later on.

Just from listening to a few of these songs, it was quite obvious how their description of "Schizoid Pop" truly fit the music. With catchy lyrics and the electronic flair added all over, it’s hard not to fall in love with it.
