Escape from Evil

Escape from Evil

Jana Hunter re-imagines herself here as Siouxsie Sioux leading an ’80s alternative rock band, preferably British. The Baltimore-based ensemble’s third album, Escape from Evil, turns up the synths and the glam power for songs like “Ondine,” “To Die in L.A.,” “Your Heart Still Beating,” and “Electric Current,” which sound like natural bedfellows with tracks by Depeche Mode, New Order, OMD, Bryan Ferry, and even David Bowie. Some credit is likely due to coproducer and mixer Chris Coady (Beach House), with further input from Ariel Rechtshaid (Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend) for smoothing over the band’s previous rough edges and helping them achieve a heavenly patina.
