Fans of Seattle's indie-pop act Throw Me The Statue were saddened to see the band's hiatus announcement back in October, but the break has proven its value since frontman Scott Reitherman's new project Pillar Point has completed their debut album, due out in early 2014. However, Pillar Point diverges from TMTS in the band's experimentation with unique dance grooves and the emotional journey accompanying their new sound. Watch Pillar Point's in-studio session on Audioasis at KEXP below, including unreleased tracks from their upcoming album, and catch them on New Year's Eve performing at Neumos with STRFKR!
