Escapologists drop their latest album, “Fireworks” on Records records records records this week.
In their first album, Escapologists made a dense and delicious stew of intelligent guitar music that was in equal measure informed both by post-rock’s stylistic strictures and pop’s melodic structures.
Fireworks is the second album and radically different to the first. The themes are still present but now underpinned by a melancholic but uplifting cocktail of indietronica that evokes a mixture of The Cure, Notwist and Cocteau Twins.
