Rocksound - 8 out of 10 "Genuine, genuinely affecting stuff"
"awesome Belfast music" - The Paper Cut
John Richard, influential music director at Seattle's KEXP, included 'Cabin Fever' on his 'Music That Matters' - Summer Songs podcast in June 2009 and Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 1 / 6Music) chose Escape Act as his unsigned band of the week in December 2008.
As the name suggests Escape Act take their musical liberty seriously, tho with influences including The Clash, David Bowie and Neil Young the eclectic sound is riddled with pop hooks and sing-along choruses.
Having earned their stripes supporting acts as diverse as Los Campesinos, White Stripes, Sky Larkin, Stephen Malkmus, Gomez and Oxford Collapse, they present a colourful, energetic and engaging live performance.
'indie melodies like tears from the sainted eyes of Morrissey.' - Francis Jones, AU, reviews Loosely Based On Fiction
