Elephant Castle Introduces His Upbeat Track "French Food"

Upcoming act Elephant Castle is the retro-inspired indie-rock project from Los Angeles-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Phil Danyew, formed in late 2019. The first single, “Cool To Be Unhappy,” was released on March 27, 2020, with a warm welcome. A fresh take on the break-up ballad, Rolling Stone called the track a "roll-around-in-your-underwear-while-the-sun-seeps-through-the-window song.” Elephant Castle released four subsequent singles with enthusiastic buzz and is back for its second release of 2021. Raised in Oceanside, CA, Danyew has been writing and recording music since age 12 after stealing his father’s tape recorder. Growing up listening to 50s and 60s oldies, Elephant Castle is a response to these early influences combined with a love for vintage synths, layered vocals, the dreamy sounds of tape saturation, and analog gear. Following the release of his newest single "French Food" he projects a very astounding track that will truly intrigue your ears. Beginning with upbeat instrumentation leading onto his soft and sweet vocals he completes the single fully. Explaining the track further it's a cheeky daydream about fine dining after living in isolation for a year. To the vocals and production this track will definitely have you dancing. Being just perfect for a late night drive or hanging out with some friends. Go stream "French Food" and check out his discography which is filled with amazing tracks.
