Escort is a 17 member — yes, 17 — member disco act founded by producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and fronted by the incredible Adeline Michèle, and features a cast of musicians who have played with Arcade Fire and Alarm Will Sound. With the release of a number of singles since 2006, Escort have won accolades from Pitchfork and the New York Times among others. “Barbarians” is the third and latest single off the band’s recently released debut effort. Sonically, the track is densely layered and slickly produced and has a sinuous and funky bass line, and tons of cowbell; but by far, Adeline Michèle has an incredibly powerful voice that fits the material like a glove.
