Presenting...Escape Act..and Tom McShane
Escape Act are a hot new act from Northern Ireland. They are set to release their new single 'God Says' as a split single with fellow Northern Ireland act Tom McShane on June 23. Lat year they released an EP called Hot Air, and then went to the legendary Chem 19 studios (the legendary Chemikal Underground studios) to work with Andy Millar, who has worked with Fratellis and Sons & Daughters. This is a quality indie-rock tune for the summer. Get this on your stereo now (and obviously, go and buy the single when it comes out).

Meanwhile, fellow Northern Irelander Tom McShane has the other side of the single with a fantastic song called 'Fighter.' In the press release it's described as 'the story of a man on the run from his ghosts and his own shadows.' It's a quality song, and I love the whole concept of split 7"s - there is little more 'indie' in the true, old sense of the word.
