Review: Escapists, The Bodega, by Sarah Gill
Escapists took to the stage in the intimate setting of The Bodega after entertaining support acts from Euler and Escape to New York. They struck out with crowd pleaser "Screams" closely followed by "This Scene."
The band were brimming with energy and it was an upbeat, fast-paced set that delighted the crowd with big riffs and soaring vocals. They were able to slow it down too with songs such as the captivating "Ghosts In Your Bedroom," which allowed frontman Simon Glancy's poignant vocals to come to the fore.
Escapists have an endearing charm about them and they bantered easily with the crowd.
The performance was lifted by the distinctly edgy guitar sounds of Oli Court together with Max Perryment on bass, which added vibrancy to the songs.

The band's set came to an end all too soon as they delivered up crowd favourites "Post Gospel Blues" and "Burial." These catchy and intense tracks were perfect closers with the stirring lyrics, drums and guitars played with full force.
They are a band worthy of note.
