Produced by Tony "The Psalmist" Silcock, Tavistock-based Escapade hit out with a four-track CD that shows a lot of promise. Catchy guitar-based rock with plenty of chunky chords is the order of the day for the title cut and it really works rather nicely (including some Delirious?-style chord progressions). For "Eternity" it all goes a little dreamy and I'm not so convinced about this one (even though there's a bit of an Oasis melody here and there), however with "Perfect Day" everything explodes into an all out rock'n roll situation and there's nothing wrong with that! The Psalmist remix of "Take It (Back) To The Streets" perhaps unsurprisingly sounds like something you'd find on the recent Psalmistry album - a great groove! A good solid EP and I want to hear more! Now where's that repeat button?!
