MUSIC NEWS: Escort Announce If You Say So Single, Out October 21

Escort's new single, "If You Say So" is the soundtrack for your sun drenched West Coast block party. Written with MNDR, "If You Say So" melds the funkier side of '70s AOR with Escort's own aesthetic of classic dance music into a bleach blonde head nodder. It's the undiscovered love child of Stevie Nicks and Larry Levan. A secret tryst between Darryl Hall and Jean Carn. By embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, Escort have managed to create something strikingly new. The If You Say So single will be released on October 21 via Escort Records and features a house take on St. Vincent's modern classic "Actor Out of Work" featuring the soaring vocals of Adeline Michèle.
Escort burst on to the scene in 2006 with a string of critically acclaimed future classic 12"s. As DJs nursed their electro-clash hangover with a seemingly never ending stream of disco edits, Escort stood out, in part, by creating dance music the old fashioned way: with impeccable production, musicianship, and songwriting. The band brings the same uncompromising approach to their live show. In an era where dance music is dominated by samples and computers, Escort has developed a reputation as one of New York's most compelling live acts by taking a sprawling ensemble to the stage to perform their elaborate recordings.

Founded by Eugene Cho & Dan Balis, Escort features an incredible cast of musicians fronted by lead singer Adeline Michèle. Performing in a variety of powerful party line-ups, the band performs live from a core 5-piece (with Adeline on bass) to a 10+ member extravaganza. Don't miss the "disco orchestra" live in NYC 11/22 at Brooklyn Bowl!
