Out now on Imagination Engine Records, the Leeds label specialising in limited Cassette releases, comes a two track EP from Middlesbrough quartet Sorry Escalator.
Opener Generation Winter is this brooding, almost menacing slice of alt rock. Built on this edgy post punk verse, it flowers into something more straightforward and melodic as it hits the chorus, allowing the guitars to splash all over you, before it regains its control and the guitar and bassline trade off their angular lines. Follow on Street Corner Absurdity is a slower, messier affair, with swirling MBV like guitars to the fore, gazes firmly set to shoes. It’s gloriously messy and unhurried.
