Praised for their timeless, gritty and genre-smashing approach to song craft, Venice-based The Great Escape is a trio comprised of Kristian Nord (drums), Malte Hagemeister (guitars) and Cambridge-born singer Ingrid Andersson. Released in 2017, sophomore full-length “Universe In Bloom” takes the raw energy and stomping confidence of their self-titled predecessor to the next level with massive hooks and catchy tunes beyond genre that could have been recorded at any point in the last 50 years.
"Reminiscent of The Supremes", "New Orleans jazz zest complemented by ebullient horns", "funky R&B-tinged melody, along with Betty Boop flavored vocals", "underdone burlesque texture that’s down and dirty", "old-fashioned melodies that are definitely different from the run-of-the-mill music pervading the pop charts" (Huffington Post)
