Release: 1 October 2021
“Glide Dog” is the B-side single from THE ROYAL RITUAL‘s recent single, “Pews In A Pandemic.”
This “meta” approach lends itself to the B-Side of the “Pews…” single – a cover of Phildel’s “Glide Dog” – where the original song was analyzed by a wavetable synthesiser, and used as an element throughout The Royal Ritual’s version – a vast departure from the sparseness of Phildel’s original arrangement, into a much heavier, industrial affair.
