Fresh from the release of his striking debut , Wild Alee, Talos’ Eoin French has well and truly announced himself as one of the most intriguing voices in domestic poptronica. Born of the continuingly fertile Corkonian scene, Talos’ affecting and ambitious amalgam of folk, electronica and R&B effortlessly balances the personal and the universal.
French’s background in Architecture and Design reveals itself through the fastidious and considered quality of his compositions. Each component tone is given its due, each instrumental flourish serving the song as a whole above all else. Crucially, the exacting nature of Talos’ approach never comes at the cost of emotional heft. We can’t wait to steep ourselves in French’s otherworldly, delicately hewn and deeply felt arrangements.
