Escapism

Sam C. Roberts

Releases 16th September 2021

Available on Bandcamp, Spotify and other streaming services

Escapism is a collection of songs that are all, in some way, about dreaming and distraction through fantasy. From tales of sentient robots winning their freedom and striking out into new worlds (ROBOTRUMBLE (Boss Fight), Drifter), sci-fi inspired stories of uprising (Dunes Divided) or introspective daydreams (Silent Window), all the music on this record is rooted in escape from reality. A stylistically diverse affair, Escapism aims to offer something unique musically, whilst providing some moments of escape for the listener.

Sam C. Roberts – vocals, basses, guitars (track 6), keyboards/synths and claps (track 3)

Nick Hartland – drums

Alistair Bell – guitars (track 2)

All music and words written by Samuel C. Roberts

Drums recorded at The Kennel Studio, South Somerset
