The Escarpment

With possibly the best name for a band from the Illawarra ever conceived, and a sound that I have quite proudly decided is akin to Tom Petty - if he grew up in Australia as a surfer - The Escarpment are a new band on the local music scene, but its members certainly aren't fresh-faced kids. These guys have put in the hard yards and have a sound to prove it.

They called me one rainy summer's eve and we set out, looking for gaps in the rain, only to be surprised by one phenomenal, rainbow-filled sunset.
