Go here to listen to Escort's "Love in Indigo."
Escort have been setting dance floors ablaze with their disco-infused beats, irresistibly catchy hooks and seductive live show since releasing a series of 12" singles in 2006. The 17-member "disco orchestra," founded by producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and fronted by lead singer Adeline Michèle, features an incredible cast of musicians who have played with everyone from indie-rock titans Arcade Fire to avant-classical luminaries Alarm Will Sound. Steeped in the venerable tradition of club-land's holy trinity, New York, Chicago, and Detroit, Escort's self-titled new album pays homage to mutant-pop luminaries such as Kid Creole and the Coconuts & Ian Dury. While embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, Escort has managed create something strikingly new.
17 members? That's a lot! We like their influences, too.
