Essex based singer/songwriter Philip Marino returns with a brand new single entitled ‘The Devil You Know’. It follows the release of his singles ‘How It Seems’, ‘45’ and his album ‘Chasing Ghosts’, which were all well received online and by BBC Essex Introducing.

‘The Devil You Know’ is a continuation of Marino’s deep alt-country/americana sound. The single features eerie strings courtesy of Pamela Grieve on the fiddle, something that compliments Marino’s writing style well. The track builds gradually throughout with light percussion, bass and harmonies but remains relatively stripped back, which suits the song perfectly.

Originally from the US, Marino’s warm, low voice tends to be the focal point of his recordings. Mixed with strong songwriting and wonderful instrumentation, his latest single is one of his best yet.

Philip Marino is always in the studio and we’re always excited to hear his next release. Be sure to follow him online here, where you can also check out his live dates. Listen to ‘The Devil You Know’ below.
