We first introduced you to neo-disco ensemble Escort two years ago as part of Muruch’s Surfacing series. Escort will release their sophomore album, Animal Nature, on October 30th and the first four singles are fabulous…
Escort is a seventeen-member “disco orchestra” led by singer Adeline Michele, and they’re definitely one of the more unusual and delightful acts I’ve heard. Escort’s self-titled debut will be released physically on January 31, 2012 and is already available digitally. I can’t imagine a more fun and catchy album being released next year.
Songs like “Caméleon Chameleon,” “Cocaine Blues,” “Makeover” and “Starlight” mingle synth-pop, R&B and disco in a fantastic, danceable concoction that’s equal parts Donna Summer, Tom Tom Club, Bow Wow Wow and early 1980’s Michael Jackson.
