‘Discover the Artist’ is our new blog series where we introduce you to artists you might not have heard of yet… but need to listen to.
Genre: Alternative & Indie
From: Cork, Ireland.
Latest Release: Far Out Now (2019).
Style: While Talos will always be deeply connected to his native Ireland, his stunning sophomore album, ‘Far Out Dust,’ draws on a far wider perspective, melding tracks written and recorded in New York, Los Angeles, London, Dublin, Cork, and Reykjavik. The influence of the unknown runs deep here, invigorating French’s haunting blend of organic and electronic music with a gorgeous sense of discovery and wonder.
But where Talos’ acclaimed debut, ‘Wild Alee,’ was a solitary affair about isolation and escape, ‘Far Out Dust’ finds French and his longtime production partner, Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Bell X1), branching out to explore new sounds and spaces, teaming up with a slew of collaborators including producers Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, Wet) and Valgeir Sigurðsson (Sigur Ros, Feist), drummer Ian Chang (Son Lux), and mixer Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).
