In 'Till we're dead', their 2000 debut Album, Eskobar produced soulful, melodic and haunting music with lyrics that provided an amazing antidote to the state of the British music scene, despite not being English! Hey, they just sing in English!
There has been much talk in the UK press recently that programs such as 'Pop Idols' are killing the british music industry. If you agree with this then listen to Eskobar.
'There is only now', the follow up album, has achieved something that many bands would give their supermodel girlfriends for! The beautiful melodies remain but this album is more upbeat, more mature, whilst still retaining the catchiness that will have you loving each song on the first listen.
Eskobar manage to create songs that grow on you more and more until you can't imagine never being able to listen to them again.
Whilst they are relatively unknown in England, this will change if there is a God in music heaven! Sometimes sounding like Coldplay, sometimes like Crowded house, sometime even like Robbie Williams! Some songs have a touch of Oasis and some songs are simply unique.
Buy this (and 'Till We're dead') and be ahead of the crowd and fall in love with these songs. You will, I promise!
