Easy on the ears, yet, delving grungy working gives The Great Escape a piquancy that stimulates the cerebrum. Combinations of dishevelment and smartly pressed collars work in a way that delights the head. The trio keep busy compositions accessible with a funk overlay that speaks of free-wheeling iconoclasm.

Finely balanced compositions interweaving betwixt a precarious and emotive vocal and a sympathetic percussion leaves the strings to paint imagery, giving the music a feeling of surprising spontaneity. The trio of The Great Escape is able to deliver music which has a current testament, whilst referencing sounds of long ago and it is their ability to encapsulate moods and moment which raises this above the parapet.

A year or so old The Great Escape recently released their début eponymous nine track LP, which is well worth grabbing hold of – along with a bottle of wine.
