After racking up millions of Spotify streams with her earlier material, including this year’s single “Electric Heights”, UK singer-songwriter Phildel is unveiling another track from her long-awaited upcoming LP. The entrancing “Glide Dog” sees a searing, teeth-bared yet playful turn from her previous airy electronica, mixing bloody gothic fantasy with her pop sensibilities.

Phildel spent the last three years making Wave Your Flags; a powerfully emotional 11-track album re-enacting cycles of loss and renewal. In the midst of the ‘#MeToo’ era, Phildel’s impending album is a body of work emphasizing the importance of speaking up and finding your way in the world. The last few years have been a crucial period of transience for Phildel and this is represented by the scale and adventure present throughout the new recordings, including the new single, “Glide Dog.”
Phildel released her debut album The Disappearance Of The Girl in 2013, a dark and intimate suite of songs exploring the gothic fantasies that sustained her through an unhappy childhood. Though written in a vacuum, Phildel’s intense piano and electronica music quickly spread to millions, sound-tracking ads for Apple, Expedia and Burberry;she was an inspiration to Mariah Huehner, author of the True Blood comic series, and her songs featured in the live shows of fashion designer Henrietta Ludgate.
“Glide Dog” is out now, and the full Wave Your Flags album will be released May 3.
