We recently posted the Elephant Castle track ‘I’m A Loser‘, which we loved. Now we’re stoked to also share the newer songs ‘My Muse‘ and ‘Life In Outer Space‘.
Both songs are further examples of the kaleidoscopic psych-pop goodness created by Los Angeles-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Phil Danyew who played in Foster The People for six years before leaving to focus on his own music as Elephant Castle. The tracks are also great examples of how to imbue life and playful energy into psych sounds – which are often too sterile and lacking verve.
Of ‘My Muse’, Danyew says “It was inspired by the sacred and addicting process of creating – the feeling that music and lyrics are channeled rather than entirely self-generated.” Heading into the starry skies with ‘Life In Outer Space’, he describes the songs as “a cosmic love story that starts in a park and ends in outer space.”
