“These folks play guitar-driven underground pop/rock that would not have sounded out of place in America in the mid to late 1990s. The songs are simple and to-the-point...Six quality cuts here…Good solid stuff.”—BabySue Blog
“How many albums have you listened to that you instantly liked half of it?…This is a real rock band…This is a band of good musicians. Hopefully you'll be hearing more from ESCAPE KEY in the near future. Buy this album.”—TheBiggestLetDown
ESCAPE KEY joins the growing ranks of indie rock bands that want to reclaim rock from ironic fashionista hipsters and return it to the garage. Think Replacements as a trio with a grittier guitar sound or a streamlined Gaslight Anthem with better rhythm. awarded their first release None of Them Are You four stars, saying the album’s opening riff sounds like “you just kicked open the door to CBGB’s in the early 90’s.” The debut EP keeps things simple, loud, and honest, with the hopping brevity of a three-minute punk song, distinct riffs, pushing bass lines, crashing drums, and Pixies-esque boy-girl harmonies.
Hungry for real and essential rock and roll in 2011? None of Them Are You is ESCAPE KEY’s drum-stick-breaking, amps-on-ten, four-to-the-floor attempt to get there.

And stay tuned for the upcoming full-length, Everything at Once.
Fender Jazzmaster, Fender Precision Bass, Fender and GK amps
