Escape Directors, an alt-rock and indie inspired quartet from Bergen County, New Jersey, really brings the hooks on their latest single, “The Distant Past” — off their upcoming EP The Crowded Room, due out July 16th. The single was featured today as a free download on AbsolutePunk.net as part of their “Free Music Friday” feature, and damned if it’s not a rare indie track worthy of an ITunes purchase! The band’s got a clear, crisp sound which incorporates elements of Augustana or Snow Patrol’s pop tunesmithing with the more indie-alternative aesthetic of Northern Room. These guys are the real deal, and if you’re lucky you can say you heard them here first!

As a bonus, check out their demo of “Set Fire,” performed live on YouTube and try to tell me these guys aren’t the real deal.
