“This New York dance orchestra was churning out period-perfect disco homages years before Daft Punk got lucky.      Rolling Stone

“ …a righteous blast of expertly engineered soul, funk, and, yes, disco.” SPIN

“ …even their four-minute songs feeling like dance-floor epics.“  – The New York Times

“it’s a rollicking collection of era-spanning anthems” The New Yorker

“The best New York disco tracks since West End Records’ early-‘80s heyday.” – Pitchfork

“Their sound is deeply rooted in classic disco, that strain of glossy, decadent dance music that the city churned out at a coke-fueled pace throughout the 1970s and into the ’80s…” The Village Voice

Escort’s new single, “If You Say So” is the soundtrack for your sun drenched West Coast block party. Written with MNDR, “If You Say So” melds the funkier side of ‘70s AOR with Escort’s own aesthetic of classic dance music into a bleach blonde head nodder. It’s the undiscovered love child of Stevie Nicks and Larry Levan. A secret tryst between Darryl Hall and Jean Carn. By embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, Escort have managed to create something strikingly new. The “If You Say So” single will be released on October 21 via Escort Records and features a house take on St. Vincent’s modern classic “Actor Out of Work” featuring the soaring vocals of Adeline Michèle.
