The Escalators - Hide and Seek

The Escalators - Hide and Seek
Press clippings cry out for convenient pigeon holes, but how do you categorize a band that takes a quaint tune from 'The Sound of Music' and turns it into a soundtrack to a 1970s car chase?

The Escalators’ weave a musical thread across generations & genres:
the sophistication of Swing,
the grooves of Detroit,
the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica, &
the funk of New Orleans.

On their debut EP “Felix” The Escalators take their favourite tunes - mostly from the 1920s to the 1960s - and infuse them with influences from all corners of their record collection.

Nestled amongst these is an irresistible original: “Hide & Seek” will have you singing along & humming all the way home.

While the gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden's voice & her inviting personality understandably steal the show, the sound of The Escalators is very much a tapestry; all parts woven together with subtlety & purpose.
The understated guitar style of Lachlan Mackenzie, all harmony & texture, is draped over a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parsons' upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore.

About this track...

A swinging reggae pulse carries this catchy tune along. The childish innocence of the title underscores the theme: grown-ups in love who are holding something back in their relationship.
