Return To The Witchwood

by Phil Matthews A.K.A. The Village



Aldora Britain Records proudly presents the latest release from Phil Matthews A.K.A. The Village, 'Return To The Witchwood'. It is a six song EP featuring four previously unreleased tracks and two tracks from his previous studio album. It is Phil's first release with us and contains the fantastically psychedelic radio single, 'Random Brandon'.

This EP acts as a successor to Phil's previous 'Escape From The Witchwood' record and allows fans to return to the mythical and magical world of The Village, a realm filled equally with colourful intrigue and sinister wickedness. The songs themselves showcase Phil's style perfectly, a psychedelic folk rock journey with shades of the blues. Think if Hendrix went acoustic and landed somewhere between Dylan and Donovan. The themes are varied too; we have lockdown boredom in 'Isolation Blues', a critical look at modern day America in 'What Can I Say?', and a look at 21st century masculinity and mental health in 'Random Brandon'. That is just for starters!

This is a record that transports the listener back to the technicolour pop of yesteryear but remains firmly rooted in the present day. We know it sounds good, why not give it a go?

Phil dedicated this release to his wife, Laura.
