The Escape Plan is a Chinese rock band formed in 2005. Originally known as the Peacock Band (kongque yuedui), the band was later reorganized and renamed the Escape Plan in 2007. Since then, it has been signed to Beauty Life, a music production company in Beijing. The style of Escape Plan’s music has evolved significantly over the years, from the previous British pop to primarily indie pop, with a hybrid of electronic, new wave and post-funk elements. Young and enthusiastic, the band sings in beautiful and poignant melodies, dosed with an air of modernity and enormous passion and vitality.
