Editorial Reviews

On Claires debut album, The Great Escape, the Munich-based five-piece offer up a wide swath of reference points electro, indie, pop, even some R&B resulting in a Technicolor hybrid of wistful, electronic, synthpop that is uniquely Claires own. The bands EP Broken Promise Land came out in fall 2013 featuring Games, a buoyant anthem to loves labors which went on to be remixed by Passion Pit and the title Broken Promise Land which was featured in a global BMW campaign and was remixed by the godfather of synth-based music, Giorgio Moroder.

Claire has toured internationally with Chvrches and Bastille, has made two trips to the US with high profile performances at CMJ in New York City in October 2013, and at this year s SXSW in Austin, TX with more U.S. touring to come later this year...

Don't judge this after it's first or second play. I was a bit dismissive, but having gone through this with
bands like Pat Metheny, I've learned that they can sometimes take time to "get". And it's almost always worth
the wait.

I'm an old Zeppelin fan, and of course, mentioned Pat. However lately I'm into EDM, Down Tempo, Chill AND Deadmau5 and Zedd, as well as heavy female vocals like from Groove Salad and LUSH. That's where I got my first taste of Claire. The couple of songs that I heard were
just so come-hither that I gave an otherwise unheard of band a chance.
This is the single best overall album I've ever heard. Very fresh, impossible to ignore. Songs like "Roll Down Run South"
just grab you. This album has everything, including some of the best vocals that I've heard since Ellie Goulding.
If their next album can match this one, they will be making a bold statement in this genre, IMHO.

On a brief skim through the tracks while at a local record store's listening station, the album seemed easily catchy but therefore potentially lacking substance. Ha! I then began an 8 hour road trip and listened to the whole album three times through, start to finish. I love it! Put it on on a lazy afternoon and let yourself sink into it. You won't regret it.
