Video: Escapists | Blood



Following on from the band unleashing Blood, their latest single to stream last month, the London based quartet return with news of their debut album 'Only Bodies'. In addition you can now watch a swanky new video above for the single featuring the band perform. Speaking about the album's conception, lead singer Simon Glancy says:

The title comes from that odd connection I have with death and how my head is often torn between the scientific and the spiritual. The past and the future too, which is often an issue for me.There's a theme throughout of outgrowing the idea of yourself and those around you and not really knowing what's coming ahead. 

Musically it's everything that we wanted in an album, pulling from all of our influences to create something completely diverse that would sit on the shelf alongside those bands that made us fall in love with music. It's the most collaborative we've ever been.

Working with [producer] James was amazing as we had such a clear vision of how we wanted it to sound and how fast we wanted to work. He was so fast that we could get away with only a few takes to keep it feeling fresh but with an amazing production quality and attention to detail”


'Only Bodies' is set for release July 21. London folk can catch them play an album launch party at The Garage on July 23rd, more details here.
