Talos is Eoin French, from Cork in Ireland. He makes patient, plaintive electronic pop music. He arrived in late 2014, with the mesmerising ‘Tethered Bones’, the dreamy production proved a perfect platform for French’s powerful voice and rewarding words. Follow-up releases ‘In Time’ and the ‘O Sanctum’ EP founds fans across the board.
After being tipped by Hot Press as One to Watch in 2017, the Cork architect released a new single, ‘Odyssey’, on February 17. It’s a swirling, romantic slice of poised electronic pop that builds to a contradictorily euphoric climax, one that belies the self-doubt at the heart of the track. It comes ahead of the release of his debut album, ‘Wild Alee’, on April 21.
Live, Talos expands to a six-piece and – following shows at Longitude, Body and Soul, Electric Picnic, a sold out Whelan’s in December 2016, alongside international dates in Eurosonic, London and New York – he has announced a nine-date Irish run in support of the debut album
