Escorts (Feel It Records), set to be released on September 15, 2023, is a nighttime record. It burns with the neon-seared complexion of a city wanderer, always moving with a funny sense that there is an unnamable fear lurking just off the horizon. City nights are fleeting, endlessly tumbling towards the disappointment of dawn. Advertisement metabolizes the sounds of good nights gone awry with startling clarity, shifting effortlessly from glossy, leather-doused glam rock to glitching, Kraut-inspired spirals, Scott Walker-tinged empty pub revelries to industrialized club loops. Undergirding the entire record is a singular devotion to pop worship: amidst its suffocating whirl of jagged sonic palettes, Escorts displays an unwavering loyalty to the ideal of simple, engaging songwriting. 

Their latest single rolls out a slightly darker side of Escorts. “Nobody’s Cop” describes images of policemen locked in fiery kisses as they invade an apartment that has become littered with cascading dishes and melancholic dreariness. Advertisement provides a convincing argument for rock’s continued ability to reflect the maddening incoherency of the world around us. Moving with a cadence which is at once both tragic and lighthearted, melancholic and laughable.
