#26 Escapists - Faraday Cage

Escapists' new single, 'Faraday Cage' will be out 24.11.14. This is their first hint at there being a second album in the pipeline.

Announced at the beginning of this month, 'Faraday Cage' is just a fantastic song. The guitar riffs are almost robotic in their synth-like relentlessness, while the drum beats are danceable and lead singer Simon Glancy's vocals hypnotise. It's a bittersweet blend of sincere emotion and indie club banger. From first listen it was a sure SOTW for us at Raw Meat towers.

Perhaps unusually, Escapists also posted a cover of Talking Heads' 'This Must Be The Place' to mark the announcement of their own single. Although they aren't two bands I would classify as similar, the cover suits them really well; it highlights the two groups' dance influences and gives Escapists a chance to get all new wave. Again, it's Glancy's vocals that carry the song away from predictable cover-fodder, while the Talking Heads' building blocks also give their bassist a well-deserved chance to shine.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

The first person to guess what this song is about gets to watch the video before anyone else, right here.

If you know Raw Meat at all, you'll know we like our coffee black, our kittens fluffy, and our hip hop? Well we like that old school.
