"For fans of: My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain, Dinosaur Jr.." SLEAZE MAGAZINE Review Sorry Escalator




Our thanks go out to Zander and all the Sleaze family for this great review of Sorry Escalators AA release ‘Generation Winter / Street Corner Absurdity’.

Here is what the culture and music magazine had to say:

“For fans of: My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain, Dinosaur Jr, Happyness and Team Picture. 

Sorry Escalator are a band who are characterised by noise rock and elements of shoegaze. Forming in 2013, they have gone on to tour with bands such as The Wytches, Fufanu and Weirds. In 2016 they released their first self titled EP Sorry Escalator, a lovely collection of songs which are original and accessible, on the fringe of 90s indie music but more comparable to bands in the realm of noise-rock such as the Jesus and Mary Chain.

They have recently released their new double A-side cassette, Generation Winter [2017], with tracks, ‘Generation Winter’ and ‘Street Corner Absurdity’. Released through the independent label Imagination Engine Records, it is a tape which shakes our walls and reminds us of our grunge induced teenage angst. ‘Generation Winter’ is a song which immediately throws us into their noisy sound with a strong melodic bassline, which is then drowned out by over driven guitars, something which is consistent throughout most of their music. The song is largely driven by catchy bass hooks and hazy lyrics.


Much preferred to the former, ‘Street Corner Absurdity’ is the second track on their cassette. Laced with feedback, it definitely shows the moodier and more shoe-gaze side of their compositions. The song starts with a dreamy My Bloody Valentine distortion sound which carries us until the cataclysmic crescendo of fuzzy, piercing solos which act as an outro. As a follow up release from Sorry Escalator [2016], Generation Winter [2017] has lived up to their immaculate and creative sound. It is a great debut release on Imagination Engine Records, and has certainly put them in good stead for the future. Be sure to watch their space for updates on their music and gigs”.
