Having spent the last six years as a touring member of Foster The People, Phil Danyew has since formed Elephant Castle and is emphatically finding his own feet in the spotlight
Since leaving behind his duties as a touring member of Forster The People, Phil Danyew has wasted no time charging into the spotlight on his own, and is doing a phenomenal job. It isn’t very often that a project can boast singles as accomplished and complete as ‘I’m a Loser’ and ‘Cool To Be Unhappy’ so early on in its life, but that is exactly what Phil and Elephant Castle have done.
The tracks have a captivating and memorable sound that feel both intrinsically linked but tonally worlds apart. Although we are only two tracks in, it feels like there is a distinctive Elephant Caslte sound and DNA that is entrenched within these singles. With an impossibly encouraging start and more eclectic and stadium-ready singles surely in the pipeline, we caught up with Phil Danyew to find out some more about the artist, the path taken to get here, and their unmissable sound.
