Aren't you just sick of people saying guitar bands are dead? Maybe it's true that leather jacketed, Made in Camden, lager lout indie rock is no more (good riddance by the way), but Escapists prove there's still a place for intelligent guitar driven indie-pop music. Breaking It Up is an accomplished and convincing release, it utilises a bold chorus and punchy instrumentation and above all else makes me positive about the landscape of UK guitar bands.
