Check out this new track from Escapists‘What Are You Waiting For’ keeps everything panoramic and guitar-oriented, and is an uptempo riff-laden song that explores the vertiginous boundary between action and inaction. It hearkens back to the tender yet brawny sound of their acclaimed debut album Only Bodies, but through the deft songwriting and recording they’ve achieved in their stop-gap singles since then, it thrums with a life of its own. We chucked them five questions:-

We are .. Escapists – Andy – Drums, Oli – Guitars, Max – Bass/Keyboards, Simon – Vocals/Guitar, Rory – Keyboards/Bass

We Sound Like .. More than the sum of our parts, interwoven layers of guitars and sweet vocal harmonies driven by pulsing drums.

The funny thing about us is .. Max is a part-time Freddy Mercury impersonator.

When we play live we like to .. Get sweaty and get out amongst the crowd.

Our best song is ..What are You Waiting For, Escapists new single.
