Single: Alex Smyth - Escort

Alex Smyth - Escort

Info: 'Escort' is the brand new song by Ambient and Electronic artist Alex Smyth. This is first release since his Debut EP 'The Utopian Dream'.

'Escort' is one of many songs Alex has written in 2018 and feels it shows the right progression since his ambient writing style as the song is a lot more up-beat. The song starts off quite ambient with the low sub-bass mimicking the chord progression of the guitars. With every verse and chorus the song grows giving you a sense motivation. Alex’s writing style brings you on a journey through the verses which was shown in his song 'Control' from 'The Utopian Dream' and he wanted to bring listeners on this same journey with 'Escort'. Alex’s hope for this song was to guide listeners to a climactic ending which is for sure to give you a sense of satisfaction when the song comes to end. The track was named after the ambition of the song – to guide you through the verses and escort you to its climax.

Although it's an oxymoron, kind of...Alex Smyth always manages to give a warm chill to his music, new single 'Escort' exemplifies his modus operandi very well. The track also gives off the same feeling you can experience at his live shows, the thunder is short but overt, yet everything you feel and hear is based firmly in a bedrock of comfort and haut-ambience. There are really nice parallels here stylistically with God Is An Astronaut, it's a real drifter of a track that takes you off to a better and distant place, perhaps it could be said that Alex Smyth is the Wildling of Irish electronic music.
