If you’re missing summer already, you need to listen to the new self-titled album from the sunny California trio, The Great Escape, which was released Friday.
Just when you thought pop rock trios were dead, this German-American super group offer an updated to psyched-out summer-of-love era classics we can’t resist. This Venice-based trio brings back some characters we might be for Halloween. Vocalist Amie Miriello belts it out Janis Joplin-style as guitarist Malte Hagemeister plays Jimi Hendrix-friendly riffs while drummer Kristian Nord, who, like the guitarist, hails from Hamburg, hammers out foot-stomping tunes.
This album calls to mind the Black Keys and Amy Winehouse, mixed with an optimistic flair. True to all things west coast, listen to their new album is on Soundcloud (the best track on the album, though, is “All I Think About”). It will brighten up your day!
