Tyler James and Jessica Maros make up both halves of the indie folk duo Escondido. Their 2013 debut, The Ghost Of Escondido, was recorded in one day. Today they’re back sharing a new track from their forthcoming album, Warning Bells, which took them longer than a day and involved Rob Schnapf, the veteran producer who helped Elliott Smith go hi-fi and has recently been heard polishing the sound of punk bands like FIDLAR and Joyce Manor.
The track in question, “You’re Not Like Anybody Else,” is a bittersweet love song that puts Escondido in good company with other folk-country crossover artists like Brandi Carlile and Courtney Marie Andrews. Explains the band, “Sometimes in life when you meet someone that stops you in your tracks it can feel wrong and right at the same time. This song describes the parallels of a passionate love and an addictive one.” Listen below.
