New Treats #4: Ellen and the Escapades

A few weeks ago I went to see First Aid Kit and Fanfarlo on there joint headline tour at the Leeds Brudenell Social Club. Anyway, both headliners were wonderful, I have seen First Aid Kit before and there voices truly are as amazing live as on record. However, the one performance that stuck in my head was not the headliners, but the support band. The beautiful Ellen and the Escapades. The Leeds based band are fronted by Ellen Smith whose beautiful soft voice defintly gives the band something very unique. She is backed by quite a heavy line-up and lots of harmonica, giving it an electric Dylan style. I predict good things! There single Without You is out now on vinyl and on iTunes. Here is a very good video of the b-side to Without You, its called Run.

enjoy 🙂 x
