In The Wake Of Youandewans Spiral Arms Ep, Will Sauls Aus Turn Their Attention From The Established To The Auspicious And Present A Brand New Artist From The Camp: Escape. Based In Glasgow, Escape Is A Fledgling Talent Whose Cultivation Amongst The Ranks Sees Him Now Ready To Drop The First Of Several Eps On Aus.
His debut EP ‘Just Escape’ is a poignant brew of delicately treated vocals, swooning strings and gut-wrenching melodicism. Backed up by remixes from the mighty Justin Martin and Jacques Greene this is a package that astutely straddles the bridge between pop and underground dance music - a skill which AUS have honed throughout their lauded and extensive anthology. The title track drifts atop a glacial bed as softly shifting strings are punctuated by Escape’s haunting croon before ‘Without You’ blooms behind sportive synth work and jutting vocals that are underpinned by a vibrant 4/4 groove. Dirtybird regular Justin Martin mines deep into ‘Just Escape’ and offers up a Remix and a Dub. Subtly permeated with some nifty sampling, his revision spotlights a vocal reprise that’s impelled by a low-end that punches in signature fashion. LuckyMe mainstay Jacques Greene weighs in with a prodigious take on the title track that churns and swells throughout it’s extended duration rounding up an enlivening insight into an artist that’s primed to make some serious headway throughout 2015.
