“… Escort sounds loose and curious on this album, with even their four-minute songs feeling like dance-floor epics. “ – The New York Times
“it’s a rollicking collection of era-spanning anthems” – The New Yorker
“They manage to replicate every Off the Wall horn blast and Patrick Cowley synth bubble with loving music geek precision.” – Pitchfork
“ …a righteous blast of expertly engineered soul, funk, and, yes, disco — Daft Punk fans just getting into the stuff would do well to make Escort their next checkpoint.” – SPIN
NYC’s Escort, founded by Eugene Cho and Dan Balis and fronted by the enormous vocals of lead singer Adeline Michèle, delivers a danceable blend of disco, funk & soul that pays homage to the classics while remaining fresh and modern. Hot off the heels of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, the ensemble will release a new package for their single Barbarians, complete with remixes from CSS, Rance Muhammitz and an Extended Dub.
Brimming with disco-infused riffs and tribal beats, the irresistibly catchy chorus effortlessly commands you to “stand up” and move. Check out the “Barbarians” stream where it premiered with SPIN and HERE.
Dubbed one of the “Best Albums of 2012” by both SPIN and Rolling Stone, Escort will kick off an international tour with a hometown throw-down at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, making stops in Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles & more.
