In a nutshell: Dreampilots could very well put Norway on the faith-based music map thanks to an anthemic sound that falls somewhere between 1980s-era U2 and the current sounds of Switchfoot. Like those key influences, the band weaves in several moments of introspection ranging from soul searching, to pleading for forgiveness, to picking up the broken pieces of life. A handful of awkward word pronunciations may distract American audiences, but the group's instrumentation and sharp songwriting skills are sure to connect with believers around the globe.1
