A total aural assault to the senses! Escapade give this thunderous foot stomper known as “Red Sky” everything they have as only the best of bands can as they make the listener sweat and glisten with pure musical envy and leave them with just enough strength to want the next single.
Leicester hailing Escapade is proving a rousing and magnetically adventurous presence within the country’s music scene.
Formed in the October of 2015, the East Midlands quartet have nurtured a sound inspired by Britpop/Psychedelic Rock but with a captivating character of its own which has grown song by song.
The beginnings of Escapade began with singer/songwriter Sam Wyatt and guitarist/songwriter Adam Bailey, the latter replying to a Facebook message placed by the former.
Playing as a duo around Leicester, they subsequently realised that the acoustic project was reaching limits which a full band could transcend. So linking up with bassist Jordan Alleston and drummer Martin Wenham last year, the quartet swiftly leapt into the live arena, their debut at two charity music festivals being quickly followed by a slot at the Salford Music Festival.
Influences across the band, adding rich hues to their guitar jangling, melodically suggestive tracks, include a healthy diversity moving from the sixties to the likes of Oasis, The Stone Roses, Nirvana, Green Day, Black Sabbath and Kasabian.
As acclaim and attention continues to crowd Escapade, Tom Meighan from the last of those recently sent the foursome a video message, commenting “It’s lovely what you’re doing, it’s a dog eat world my friend, and all of you stick to what you’re good at, and that’s music”
His spark was their previous single “Stepping Stones”.
With their new single “Red Sky” Escapade are in top gear to prove him right, the seriously infectious single the latest flame in an increasingly bolder and exciting creative fire.
