My apologies – Tadhg and I have been chatting for a while now which means this has all been in my inbox for more days than it should before I share it with you.

From the four track release (available on bandcamp) the third – Day In The Life – is my pick of the release and to be fair I am not certain whether it is because I am minded of the track by the title which reconciles with the Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich or because it is equally as desperately contemplating inequities in life – however I came to it – I recommend spending time with the 2016 realism of Take It Easy.

The Escape

I know from time to time you ponder whether my tinnitus clouds my hearing and so you may ponder with The Escape, but as always – I hope we will agree to agree, this is music that adds to the weave of life.

Cleaved out of hewn flint there is no finesse or contemplative within The Escape and for this I can’t help but be drawn to comparisons with The Fall with scattered chords, off the scale vocals and a percussion that rattles in another room and because of those juxtapositions I just need to hear more. The very discordance of it all makes for an out-put that makes for a joyful space in which to reside as the tracks resonate of the here and now. Archaic symbolism veering against social diaspora and the resulting out-put has a burst of energy which like a squeeze of lemon in the eye gives pleasure for its very discomfort, self-confidence tinged with confusion.

Only three tracks are extant from three months ago and Kian only arrived three weeks ago, so it will be of intrigue to explore how things develop over the coming while. One of my favourite bands of the year thus far for marking exactly how the world lays and therefore speaking for a generation.

I welcome The Escape and thank them for being exactly of the moment and precisely why Indie Bands Blog started those five years ago, welcome to music of the i generation and as a reader – on this occasion – if you are on a mobile – you have it exactly right.
