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.

would love to check them out, but your download service appears to have switched to mpeg3 which doesn't seem to like opening in i-tunes, anyone got any advice for an old technophobe? Thanks for the good wishes, my back is painful rather than broken, think i did it with an oversize crate of cd's, on reflection lots of smaller boxes would have been a better idea

How odd, opened these on iTunes myself and the download service says it's mp3. Let me know if you still have problems, A.J.
