Emerging in Northern Virginia, Escape the Armada laid its foundations in an area already hotly contested with musical ambitions two years ago. Rather then shy away from the competition, however, ETA relished the challenge, the local music scene emboldening them to create bigger and better tracks. Sweet pop influences filter through their distinctive rock undertones, pulling you in and gripping you tightly until the very last notes have finished ringing in your eardrums. The vocals provide stark contrast to the pulse-pounding rhymes, resulting in a thrill-ride from beginning to end that you just can't seem to get out of your head.
