Escort featured on cover of Guardian G26 June 2013
Brooklyn’s finest disco orchestra Escort will give their debut album a UK release on June 17th. The New Yorkers’ self-titled record received extensive critical acclaim in the US last year, spanning Pitchfork, Spin, and even making Rolling Stone’s prestigious Albums of the Year list. Here in Britain, The Guardian’s G2 supplement presented Escort on their cover this month, with the seventeen-strong disco orchestra being included in a feature on the return of classic disco alongside Daft Punk, Breakbot, Skream and The Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears – with Shears already describing Escort as “the best disco you’ve ever heard.”
