Out on December 11th, and accompanied by a headline show at Birthdays in Dalston is the new single, Pyramid Scheme, from London quartet Escapists. The track has this almost dour shoegazeiness about it, brightened by Simon Glancy’s vocal, where he reaches for the stars, and with his almost ethereal falsetto accompanied by these guitar swirls and ripples, as Glancy tells the tale of his embittered relationship with the church and worship.

It’s thrilling stuff.
