“Power Pirate isn’t just messing around in a garage. The electronic-pop-rock songs on their debut album, “Plane Ticket,” sound polished beyond their years.”

Washington Post

“Their catchy melodies are about to become world-famous.”

– Craig Melvin of NBC

“Up-and-coming local band”

WashingtonLife magazine, ‘Band of the Week’

“Imagine what it could trigger when exploding out of speakers at a club.”

Pop That Rocks

“Usually I’m not that into electronic music, but this trio deftly combines aspects of both electronic and rock genres, while managing to maintain an edgy sense of melody and grandeur.”

Jeffro of Metro Music Scene

“It’s nice to see a young band that actually knows what they are doing”

Brightest Young Things

“Michael’s fingers moved in a calculated frenzy across the keyboard. Emily got on her knees to shred the guitar, and Annika seemed lost in a trance on the drums.”

The Northwest Current

“Fun, pulsating, head-rocking music”

District of Sound

“Power Pirate encapsulates the very energy and dynamism that rock is supposed to have, and was meant to convey.”

Marco Delmar, 9 times winning WAMA’s Producer of the Year award


The Little Hoya

“I have to say – they sound fantastic… they are creating music that is miles beyond what people in our age bracket are creating.”

– Russ Starke of Used Wigs Radio

“The music, all the promotion, the website – everything they do – they’re doing it all themselves.”

Russ Starke of Used Wigs Radio

“A triumvirate of raw talent, the band offers listeners a musical oasis of sugar-infused electronic mania.”

– Emily Yu of District of Sound

“The band’s performance overall was inspired and exciting as Emily reigned supreme on guitar, Michael showed his proficiency on keyboard, and Annika’s hands flew across her drums with sticks waving to the rapid tempos.”

Emily Yu of District of Sound
