Felix

by The Escalators

supported by
/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    The Escalators rented a farmhouse in the Winter of 2014 and approached their debut EP “Felix” as a concept album: to draw on classic songs from the 1930s to the 1960s, and infuse them with exotic influences from all corners of their record collection.

    Thus, The Girl From Ipanema becomes a Brazilian beauty on a Jamaican holiday. And a quaint tune from 'The Sound of Music’ turns into a funky soundtrack to a 1970s car chase.

    Nestled amongst these reinventions is the irresistible original composition “Hide & Seek” floating on a reggae pulse.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Felix via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
