Es­capade to bring melodic sound to Paddy’s

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

FANS of melodic mu­sic and the sounds of iconic bands such as Kaskade, Em­pire of the Sun and Gold­frapp will en­joy their fresh sounds of Es­capade who are per­form­ing live this week at Paddy’s Shenani­gans.

It was a com­bined vi­sion and a plethora of in­stru­men­tal abil­ity that fused the dy­namic duo of Kiki and Justin to­gether over 10 years ago.

The band is the tale of a sim­ple boy, a girl, gui­tars, synths, piano, noise, a stu­dio, a com­mon vi­sion, an in­stru­men­tal temp­ta­tion and a lot a love.

As teenagers Kiki and Justin be­gan to write, record, gig and pro­duce tunes in their home­town of Ade­laide and af­ter a cou­ple of over­seas trips, a stack of gigs and some big sup­ports, they de­cided to call their new sound Es­capades.

Be­fore fus­ing their tal­ents to­gether un­der the ban­ner of Es­capades, Kiki bounced onto the pub­lic mu­sic scene in late 2004 as a fi­nal­ist in chan­nel 7’s Pop­stars.

Af­ter hav­ing the ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing an orig­i­nal song on live tele­vi­sion and ex­it­ing the show due to the non commercial na­ture of her artistry, the op­por­tu­ni­ties con­tin­ued to roll through the door.

Mean­while, Justin has worked in the mu­sic in­dus­try as both a mu­si­cian and live sound en­gi­neer and has had the plea­sure to work with a huge range of artists, co­me­di­ans, bands, out­fits, and clien­tal for cor­po­rate func­tions.
