With little but this editorial note to go on, I clicked the sideways arrow on Kill J’s “Phoenix” and found—phraseology aside—that it’s hard to formulate a more apt description. An expertly incarnated union of haunting melancholia and glitch-infused witch-house, “Phoenix” merges the familiar with the futuristic to create an alt-pop lovechild worthy of ruling over Fantastica. In fact, given the shroud of mystery encircling the Danish artist responsible for “Phoenix,” we can’t rule out the possibility that that’s exactly how the song came about. Until we know more for certain, we’ll let the song speak for itself. Stream it below.
