ESC Life - Post Indie Live Act in zagreb

ESC Life Short Info

ESC Life is a four-piece formed in 2013 by experienced Croatian underground musicians with different backgrounds (Hemendex, ST!LLNESS, Man Zero, Umor) finally united in their love for simple and catchy pop tunes and distorted guitars. After a few months of songwriting, the band has come together with material heavily influenced by indie rock scene of the eighties and nineties.
They are compared to legendary bands like Pixies, Sebadoh, Hüsker Dü, Dinosaur Jr, early releases by Weezer, but also contemporary acts like The Hold Steady.

In the autumn of 2014, ESC Life had an honour to tour southeast Europe as an opening act and a backing band for their hero Grant Hart (Hüsker Dü, Nova Mob).
ESC Life are praised by the press for their loud, fast and energetic live shows.

“A fine-tuned arrival of this tight and fully accomplished band, the vitality and beauty of their songs, leaves an impression that this is the band these guys always wanted to be in." - Gogo Pavlov, Potlista

"Guitars dominate the live sound of ESC Life, who proudly wear their obvious influences like Đavoli and Bad Religion on their sleeve – and they sound good." - Nikola Delić, Kultivator

“...ESC Life is a professional, funny, unanimous, meticulous and a very tight band that needs to be seen live. Egalité, fraternité, and a french word for kickass.“ - Leo Vidmar, Potlista

In November 2014, ESC Life has hit the studio and recorded their first full length album containing 9 original songs and a cover song originally performed by one of the best regional songwriters, Neno Belan.

"Access All Areas" has been released on April 20th for PDV Records, available on 12“ vinyl, CD and via digital download.
