ESCAPIST, THE / SLACK BIRD: Split: 7"

Jul 24, 2013

Two above-average folksy punk bands that would fit in well with at a show with fans of Zydepunks/Gogol Bordello/etc. Both bands are from the same town in Finland and while The Escapist have more of a “punk” vibe to their sound and claim Zounds and Arctic Flowers as influences, and Slack Bird are a project band by the drummer of more crusty/hardcore bands doing a very stripped-down bass and mandolin folk stuff, the focus is close enough that the bands sound at home doing a split with each other. The production is far above average and the songs are actually pretty catchy.
