    Listen to the "Why Oh Why" (Pound Sterling Remix) by Escort by going here.

    A little background info: 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 seventeen-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 & the Coconuts and Ian Dury.

    The drums sound like something you'd hear on a Bananarama record.

    The album drops on Jan. 31.

    Did you dig "Why Oh Why?"
