Sam Gellaitry is ready to present the third chapter in his Escapism saga: a coming-of-age trilogy that demonstrates the young prodigy’s unique, filmic musical productions. Hot off the heels of the previous two Escapism instalments, Escapism III will be released Friday 7th April via XL Recordings / Remote Control Records. The EP sees Sam Gellaitry’s sound transcending, invoking a cinematic feel of technicolour-esque scope to his experimental production.
Gellaitry, now 20, started producing at the age of 12. Growing up in central Scotland and being influenced by a wide range of musical genres, Gellaitry used his imagination and love of nature to create eclectic soundscapes. The Escapism series in turn weaves a progressive sound throughout with each instalment evolving from the other.
As Sam says of the project:
“I always liked when people would compare my tracks to a story or a journey. It is something I’ve always strived for and I love imagining my fans getting lost in my tracks just as you would with a book or when exploring. I also feel that having an escape and something that takes your mind off the negativity in life is essential. When I realised that my escape would turn into what I do as a living, naming the project Escapism only felt right.”
