Phildel Comfort Me video & Glass Ghost EP plus special dates

The Glass Ghost EP is the latest release from Phildel and caps what’s been a fairy-tale year for the Londoner.

The EP is a great introduction to her work which is quite thoughtful and mystical to powerful effect.

It’s all verging on the conceptual but don’t worry – it is quite accessible and has a pop flavour that keeps it well away from any grand over indulgent posturing. Phildel explains:  “I always feel closely connected to the changing of the seasons and I wanted to create a work that captured the feel of winter. My vision for the EP was to capture a snow-globe world, a dark fairy tale landscape – the result is quite dreamlike”.

The song Glass Ghost is a mysterious world of piano and drifting vocals but has an immediacy that keeps it anchored. For me the highlight is Comfort Me that has a spine tingling vocal and haunting backing that build into an uplifting blast of melodic force with the chorus. The Phildel Comfort Me video is quite a spectacle too, touching on a conceptual art film feel and builds on the atmosphere of the song well.

Phildel will be playing dates in Glasgow, Manchester and London. The Manchester date will be in the intimate grandeur of Sacred Trinity Church in Manchester on 5 December. For tickets click here
