Rigil made his musical debut back in 2008 with his experimental pop album Concertina Heart, as well as serving as half of musical duo Kokoro Thief. The musician is back releasing with plenty of music arriving throughout the year and expected for next year. The most recent of these is Sanctuary, an experimental pop single centred on the idea of safe spaces.
Rigil shares: “I wrote this track to explore how we’re all making safe spaces. I think we’ve all been finding out what’s close to home and discovering little sanctuaries all over the place. This song is about that moment where you have to make a decision – do you keep it secret or do you choose to share it.”
With sparse electronic production and sensitive, soulful vocals from Rigil, Sanctuary is an absorbing release that is heightened by an impressive video from Anthony Baxter which utilises footage of Rigil intercut with clips from B-Movie classic Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women.
Rigil continues to live in London and has recently released another single Black Clay which is also available to stream and his next track Eyes For Him will be out before the end of the year.
