Phildel #2 - The Disappearance of the Girl

Facebook / phildel.com

Phildel came to my attention through her track "Storm Song" which blossomed with majestic, dramatic beauty towards the end of last year. Now to tease her forthcoming album The Disappearance of the Girl (due for release 11th March) she has been gradually releasing tracks from it via a series of artistic YouTube videos full of natural imagery and symbolism that have provided a real treat for the senses.

You can view the entire series via the link above, I'll pick a couple of my favourites below... The title track is absolutely bloody marvellous, Phildel's voice the absolute star of the show, rich and luxurious her ethereal voice hovers amongst luscious strings and restrained instrumentation that adds immeasurable levels of haunting beauty.

Both "Union Stone" and "Beside You" are made with heart and soul, equally memorable stark piano led ballads with fragile, whispered vocals unfold like a dream overflowing with emotions and fairytale-esque flourishes. I love the arrangements, I love the music, yeah The Disappearance of the Girl is an album that is going to be worth investigating fully.
