The Great Escape – “Let Me Go Wild”

We last checked on California rockers The Great Escape in 2014, upon the release of their self-titled album. Now comes their new album Universe in Bloom, a step forward that’s headlined by a love for ’60s and ’70s sounds, as well as contemporary rock. The album’s opener, “Let Me Go Wild”, impresses immediately. Brass adornments and perky vocals lead this thrilling track, which actually recalls Blur’s album, The Great Escape – imagine that! Ingrid Andersson’s vocals prove the perfect complement to mounting brass and a built-up bridge, where she gradually goes wild in her vocal intensity. Fun, sunshine-tinged rock is what to expect from this stellar release, streaming in full below:
